White water rafting on the baron river

A fantastic afternoon, the guide Kyle was really good and fun. Would recommended to anyone even novices. Just make sure you are already changed into your bathers before you go as no changing facilities available. Great experience.

Great time on the Barron River

From the time we were greeted to the time the day was over the staff were friendly, outgoing and entertaining. We always felt safe and supported on the river and all instructions were clear and easy to follow. We had a great time on the Barron River and would highly recommend spending an afternoon rafting with the crew from Foaming Fury. Getting picked up and dropped off at our hotel doorstep was the icing on the cake.
