“A true wilderness experience”

Franklin River Nature Trail
Reviewed 4 December 2015

Our rafting trip down the Franklin River was an amazing, remote, true wilderness experience. I don't think there are too many places like this were not a sign of human habitation can be seen over such a distance, No houses, no motors, no litter, just beautiful natural scenery day after day. Our guides from Water by Nature, Brett, Klaudia and Scott were highly organised and skilled, something I learnt to appreciate in some of the more adrenaline charged parts of the river as they safely navigated us through some tricky situations. The cool waters and paddling quickly built up a hunger which was more than satisfied at each break and meal time. The guides regularly turned out delicious, varied and nutritious food. We started to wonder if we were going to put on weight, despite the energy expenditure on the water. Every dish was so good and given the conditions, I can't rate the food highly enough. By the trip end, we were tired but exhilarated having experienced this wild and beautiful place.

This is on trip receommended to EVERYONE! I have visited the Franklin River at both ends since I was about 12 yo. It is spedctacualr however and where ever you see it. On a par with the Gordon River. Beautiful scenery, fantastic reflections, constantly changing, never boring or dull. The mountains and valleysd thrpugh which it flows are equally changing and mesmerising.

What do you call a bunch of 40 year old girls in a raft?
Bloody happy!
We had the most amazing time with Brett, Klaudia and Robin, our guides.
The food was unbelievable! I really commend them for that and the fact that they try so hard to not only provide the most amazing experience on the river, but also off the river. at camp at night.
Their knowledge and combined experience is very comforting when you are an inexperienced rafter!
The ruggedness and beauty of the river is astounding
I will definitely do this again.
