We had a wonderful trip down the Franklin with Water by Nature. Exceptional guides with plenty of experience and really great cooking skills! The river is stunning. Well worth making a booking as the guides would make the trip safe and enjoyable in any conditions.

A fantastic trip down the Franklin River.
kWe did the 7-day trip with a pretty mixed group from different countries. The weather was fantastic and the tasmanian nature is incredible. Furthermore we spotted a spotted quoll as well as a platypus during the trip.
The organisation of the trip was great and we were really happy to taste all the different local food.

What a great trip! As a native Taswegian I was ashamed to say that I had never been down the Franklin...but not anymore! We hit the river along with our intrepid West Aussie friends, fresh from the Kokoda Track (why walk when you can paddle?). The river is magnificent, and this is the only way to see it. Our guides, Brett, Ester and Nick were organised, safe and fun, with over 40 years rafting experience between them. A warm pain au chocolat at 6am is a great way to wake up...and where did you hide those two bottles of champaign and how on earth did they survive all those rapids? Thank you Brett, Ester and Nick for a truly memorable experience. This is an absolute "must do" for locals and visitors alike and I can now include this (along with "chainsaw use", "drip torch competency", and playing the banjo) as part of my home grown Tassie CV. Life's too short, don't put it off any longer....paddle, paddle, paddle...

Our group of intrepid 10 West Aussies joined forces with a couple of resident Taswegians to undertake the Franklin journey in January. Trip leader Brett, along with great support from guides Ester and Nick, safely took us on and amazing 8 day adventure. Stunning wilderness scenery, challenging obstacles, some adrenaline filled moments and lots of laughs. Plenty of great food and memorable campsites. We are very lucky to have the opportunity to experience this special river. A unique and memorable trip. Highly recommended.

What an amazing Xmas 2019. It was spent rafting this beautiful river with a remarkable group of people and staff. The river and its history should be a must for all Australians. It is wild; no internet, no cars, just nature at its best.
The trip was well run with 2 guides who always had our safety as paramount. Thank you Nick and Klaudia for looking after us and cooking the most amazing food.
I recommend all to go on this trip with water by nature, I couldn't fault them.
Thank you again for an unforgettable experience, I hope to do the trip again at some stage.
