If you're looking for something awesome to do in the afternoon this is the tour for you. So much fun and the guides know the river like the back of their hand. We were with Joe and he smashed it. Definitely go with these guys

Great experience with knowledgeable guide, Jordan. Funny as too. Safety is a priority while you have fun. Getting wet is what it's all about! Give it a go!

My two teenagers and I did the white water rafting down Barron Gorge and it was brilliant. I think I’ve found my new favourite outdoor activity and can’t wait to do it again.

We had the best time white-water rafting! The things that made it so fun were the quality of our guide and the overall knowledge of the rafting company. It was pretty crazy a few times, but it wasn't to our guide... he knew what was...More
