Great trip filled with excitement and lots of laughs.
, Feb 2021
It's was a great trip, full of laughs, excitement going through the rapids and relaxing as floated along the river surrounded by beautiful scenery. Our guide Justin was great, very informative and we had a good time with lots of banter and joking around. His experience and instructions got us through all the rapids with no dramas, but plenty of excitement. A nice way to finish of a hot day floating down in the cool water of the Barron river.

Enjoyable afternoon with an experienced guide. We got ahead of the crowd so managed to have a bit of a swim as well.
Just do it!

Great experience.. the staff initially looked a bit confused with the covid dos and donts but ultimately they got their game right when we hit the water .. that’s what their main skill was and they were great at it.

White water rafting - Beginners

It was a great experience, the guides are helpful and friendly. The Rafting itself is a lot of fun, not too extreme or tiring but a great experience. As it was our first time we were quite worried but the guide helped make the experience worth while and I would most definitely go with them again. The bus is comfortable and we were picked up from the hotel on time and we headed out to the gorge at the given time. The half day was enough, we were not rushed had enough time to get the full experience.
Great fun white water rafting
