Enjoy a collaborative adventure that combines exhilarating white-water rafting with a scenic steam train ride through the stunning and historical West Coast wilderness…
Get ready to enjoy two thrilling experiences, by river and land on this epic six hour adventure that takes you from exhilarating rafting along the King River to fascinating views by steam train along the West Coast Wilderness Railway.
You’ll begin the day near the mountains of the West Coast Range where your friendly rafting guide will brief you before you start your 7km journey through the rapids of the King River Gorge.
Enjoy some peaceful moments as we paddle through tranquil water surrounded by beautiful ancient rainforest and rare Huon Pine trees.
Take a moment to breathe in the fresh enjoy and enjoy unspoiled views of nature at Garfield River before things get exciting again leading into the portage at the Sailor Jack Rapid! And make sure to catch a glimpse of the Railway and native wildlife along the way.
Once we reach Dubbil Barril Station you’ll jump on the steam train and soak up some amazing views as we travel over a steep ridge and through dense wilderness. Along the way, we will stop at Rinadeena where you can enjoy a complimentary hot drink and Lynchford where you can try your luck at gold panning before you are returned to Queenstown after an amazing day out!
