Half Day Family Rafting on the Barron River

Join us for an exciting rafting experience the whole family can enjoy. We head to the rapids of the Barron River and on to Lake Placid which is situated in the stunning Barron Gorge National Park, only a short 20 minute drive from Cairns

The emphasis of this trip is FUN and it is the perfect introduction to rafting – we experience the thrill of grade 1 and 2 rapids under the watchful eye of trained and certified river guides. Your backdrop is pristine World Heritage listed Rainforest, providing a great backdrop for photos!

We use both 8 person rafts and 2 person sports rafts for a variety of pure fun. Sports rafts hold two adults or an adult and child, children aged 10 and above can raft together without an adult

Please note this tour requires a short walk over rocks to access the rapid section
