Experience the rapids of Barron Gorge on this half-day Cairns adventure! Just a short 15-minute drive from Cairns, the tour takes you to the mighty Barron river in amongst the tropical rainforest. Barron Gorge National Park is well known as one of two white water rafting hotspots around Cairns over challenging Grade 3 rapids. If you have already been white water rafting before, riverboarding is your next adventure!
River boarding is a more personal experience. Everyone has their own individual riverboards, fins, and safety equipment. You go headfirst into the river rapids, tackling the course from within the Barron Gorge River (as opposed to on the river). Basic swimming levels are required, and your experienced tour guides will show you how to read the water and provide tips on making the most of your riverboarding experience.
This adventure tour is suitable for families, people looking for their next adventure, or those seeking to try something new with Australia’s only river boarding tour company. The guides are passionate about experiences, adventure, fun, and safety. They're more like ‘life experience coaches’ rather than tour guides. The tour can have a maximum of 16 people in your group providing a personal experience to enjoy in the Wet Tropics!
Meeting point: 58 Grafton St, Cairns City.
