Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Located approx. 87 miles (140 km) south of Cairns, Tully Gorge National Park is a premiere destination while visiting North Queensland. With tropical water temperatures year-round, Tully River white-water rafting provides the ultimate day trip.

Enjoy a convenient hotel pickup, including Northern Beaches and Mission Beach, or make your way to the designated starting point from Tully. Relax during the scenic drive to Tully, traveling through cloud-covered coastal mountains and past clear streams and sugarcane fields.

After a safety briefing and some paddling instruction from your river guide, you're provided with a life jacket, spray jacket and helmet in preparation for a white-knuckle adventure, including up to 5 hours of rafting over more than 45 rapids. Your guide helps to maneuver the raft over the rapids, which include some up to Grade 4. Ride the unforgettable Alarm Clock, Wet and Moisty, Stair Case and the dramatic Theatre — all before a riverside lunch opposite Ponytail Falls.

Have free time here to recharge your batteries and take in the breathtaking scenery of the World Heritage-listed rainforest before negotiating the afternoon's remaining rapids. Afterward, change into dry clothes and end your full-day tour with a hotel drop-off.

Best tour ever
, Sep 2019
We had a great time. Fantastic fun rafting with vibrant and knowledgable guides in a spectacular setting. Opportunities to jump out and float downstream, slide into a plunge pool and jump off a 5-metre rock if you dare. It doesn't get any better than this.
Wonderful Day of Rafting

This raft trip is a don't miss, the warm water is not to be believed. Our guide was wonderful, and was always in control of the raft. The lunch provided was very good, and even though it poured rain for the entire trip, we were not cold. (very warm water 25 deg. C) The rapids were excellent this was a first class adventure
Excellent and fun!!

Superior rafting experience! Good tea/coffee and breakfast. Nice lunch. Friendly guide. Requires good amount of exercise during the activity. Make sure you understand the safety requirement and protect yourselves and others as I saw few peoples got hurt.

OMG this was one of the most fun things I've ever done! We decided to book this trip for our last day visiting Australia. Our river guide was, Marty. We were so lucky to have Marty as our river guide, because in our opinion, he was the most experienced AND entertaining : Rafting wasn't too hard, but still exciting. If you know how to follow directions, then you can definitely do this. The views of the surrounding greenery were amazing! It was worth the trip, and the photographer took great pictures of us that we got to show everyone!

Spent a lot of time on the river waiting for the other 8 boats. When we were moving it was fun. When we changed out of our wet clothes at the end of the day the girls go behind the bus and the men change in front of everyone on the side of the road. It was pouring rain and I'm standing in the mud with clean dry clothes in one hand and a towel in the other and no where to set the dry clothes. When I complained they said That's how we do it in Australia.

Completely taken care of from hotel pick up to hotel drop off. Our guide, Morris, was extremely attentive to my nervousness while making it completely adventurous for my husband and three teenage boys. Then during the rafting trip, you walk into the forest and there is literally a BBQ waiting for you! Just a great day, great photos, great guide!!

This was my favorite experience in Australia. There were just enough rapids to keep the adrenaline level high but not raise the fear factor. Our guide was awesome. In my opinion this is a must do for anyone visiting Australia.

Well it was a work out but it was great the guide was awesome and I just would say be sure to bring sunblock. But the only negative thing is the BBQ didn't have many options.
