Cairns Skydive & Barron River Rafting Package

Activity 1: Skydive:

Skydiving in a tropical paradise is guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience. Skydive in Cairns offers a warm tropical climate and an amazing view of the beaches, islands, rainforests and mountains. The view from the air is stunning.

Cairns Skydive company has highly experienced tandem skydive masters and the latest in safety equipped tandem parachutes, making them very well prepared and trained. The landing location is an exclusive dropzone site south of Cairns. And once the skydivers are back on the ground the best thing to do is to sit back, relax and watch other skydivers come in to land.

The skydive team has over 30 years experience and 100% commitment to safety for tandem skydives. It is guaranteed high levels of safety and service. This is the only Skydive operator located in, skydiving over, and landing in Cairns.

To record this amazing experience please see the option below.

  • Handi Camera: The tandem skydiver guide holds a small camera and records the jump experience

Activity 2: Barron Rafting:

This has to be the most fun and exciting way to discover the pristine local rainforests of the area. Enjoy rafting the Barron River for 2 hours through grade 2 & 3 rapids.

The Barron river has the advantage of departing all year round, tropical water temperatures and breathtaking scenery and rapids.

The Barron river is located only 20 minutes away from Cairns CBD so travelling is not required. This half day activity is perfect for someone who wants to experience rafting but has limited time in Cairns.

Each raft is controlled by a highly trained river guide who teaches passengers the correct rafting techniques to help them during the tour so experience is not necessary. Also, during the tour the guides share the history and wonders of the magnificent landscape around them.
