A great afternoon of action on the Barron River. We did self-drive and were picked up near caravan park on lake placid road. A short drive up to the top with a little paperwork on the way went in no time. Did this with my 2 boys and they also loved it. The guides were well drilled and made it good fun. Great scenery which was a bonus to the action itself. Keen to do it again.
Great team and a great experience
Alberto Nieto del Cano 11 months ago

Great team and a great experience. It is for all levels, so if you are looking for something wild maybe they are not the best rapids ever. But fully recommended if you have enough time around Queensland. The river and the landscapes are breathtaking. Marko the best!

Honestly it was such a great experience
Kate Armstrong 4 years ago

Honestly it was such a great experience! The instructors were incredibly friendly and helped everybody feel comfortable and at ease, we had a lot of fun together as a group. We didn't know everybody in the raft but by then end we were a team! Even though our raft got stuck at one point, throwing a few people out, the instructors remained calm and helped make sure everybody was safe. All the equipment was in good condition, I felt safe at all times and was able to enjoy the ride! I would 100% do this again and would 100% recommend the experience to friends.

Its a wonderful experience we had with u guys
Muhammad 4 years ago

Max gave us briefing before starting and it was great. Enjoyed the joke max told us during the rafting. You guys really work hard to make these acrivities wonderful. Really appreciate it. Will definitely recommend to family and friends back home. Thanks a lot!

The day was terrific
Jeanne Lee 4 years ago

The day was terrific. Our guide Dylan was great fun and made the trip down the river entertaining. The rafting crew were highly professional and proficient in getting the group out and moving quickly. The great start for a first time white water rafting. Thanks.

Time to pickup: sharp on time
Ivo 5 years ago

Time to pickup: sharp on time. Attention by staff: superb. They walked us carefully through the process, especially since this was our first time. Their names were Mickey (from Kiwiland) and Ben (The pirate who boarded our ship as he wished). For them, we want to express our best words of praise and gratitude. They made this an unforgettable experience. Highly recommend this tour and this company for river rafting in Cairns.

This was a thoroughly enjoyable and exhilarating experience
Neil 5 years ago

This was a thoroughly enjoyable and exhilarating experience. I'd never done white water rafting before and the instruction we were given before hand set us all up well for what to do and how to deal with every situation that arose. From the first rapid to the last it was adrenaline pumping and full of laughs and fun. At the end we spent 15 minutes or so cruising gently over lake placid while our guide gave us a biology talk on the local area and in particular the rain forest. A thoroughly enjoyable half day from beginning to end. I would highly recommend anyone to do this. We had a guy on with us who couldn't swim and he was fine so there's no excuse not to try this amazing experience. What you waiting for. Book it. You won't regret it.

Being the first timer
Wendy 6 years ago

Being the first timer, I was nervous before getting into the raft, but the experience turned out to be great fun. Friendly and experienced staff made the trip memorable. Will definitely do it again.

We quite enjoyed the whole rafting activity
Khai Theng Wai 6 years ago

We quite enjoyed the whole rafting activity. They can have more improvement in safety issue and may lengthen the period of rafting.

Barron River rafting was truly enjoyable.

Barron River rafting was truly enjoyable. I learned the many skills that is used for rafting in dangerous river waters. And made lots of awesome friends in the process. I also did some swimming in the cold waters of Barron River. It was Fun!!! Had an awesome time!

Take some dry clothes with you for the return journey home, as you will get really wet on the tour. You can leave extra clothing on the bus, but it's suggested to leave any valuables at your hotel, as you won't want to lose them in the river.
