“Franklin River with Water by Nature”

Franklin River Nature Trail
Reviewed 10 March 2016

This is truly the trip of a lifetime. I don't think I have ever felt so relaxed. Some serious rapids for adrenalin heads, some awesome scenery for wilderness lovers and some gourmet meals for the foodies. Through in the most competent guides you could ever want, top quality gear and an easy booking/planning website, and you have the complete package. I'll be doing it again.

I did a 10 day trip in Jan 2016 with Water by Nature. Claudia and Brett know everything about this river and how to get people down it. Across the trip we experienced a lot of different things: hard paddling, serene quiet spots, hiking, great food, camping under the stars, exciting rapids. I can recommend this trip and can assure you that you will be talking about it for years to come. Oh and the most important recommendation, wear Dunlop Volley shoes, no ifs, no butts, no your favourite joggers are not good enough, yes it does really matter.

Great place to break up the drive. A short walk to the single person suspension bridge. It really is worth it

A big thank you to Jim and Marlo the river Guides for making this 7 day adventure one of the most amazing trips I have ever undertaken. The Guides were amazing the scenery spectacular and the members of the group great fun. It was a physically demanding trip with incredible portages through amazing canyons and over massive obstacles............................Cant wait to do it all again!!!!!!

On Lyell Highway, 26 minutes (17km) from Derwent Bridge on the way to Queenstown, there is a pleasant place to stop and relax in the nature, having a break or a picnic in this peaceful spot. There are parking spots, plus there are some tables and public toilets which can be used to eat and relax.
There are two walking trails (short, the first 5 minutes, the second 15 mins, both return) that will allow to walk inside the eucalyptus forest with their powerful smell, and have a view of the waters of the Franklin River.
Ideal stop for nature lovers driving the West Coast Highway.
