Why do we love this

We love this exciting journey over water, as it is a fun way to navigate through ancient forests. Witty and experienced guides will make this tour even more memorable. 

What to Expect

The Tully River Gorge truly is a natural wonder. The river is surrounded by ancient, world heritage rainforests and has carved its way through a canyon, leaving spectacular giant boulders. Experience the world-class rapids of Tully Gorge during an exciting half-day or full-day sports rafting journey in this stunning area of Queensland.

The day starts with a self-drive to Tully Gorge, where experienced guides await to take you on this unforgettable trip. Swap your clothes for swimming gear in the changing rooms, and gear up for the ride. After a smooth beginning, the excitement level suddenly rises as you start drifting over dramatic 2-3 grade rapids in your very own raft. A new skill set and a fantastic experience are guaranteed!

During the half-day tour, you'll drift down the Tully River for 6 kilometres, experiencing electrifying rapids and the magnificent rainforests all around. At the end, you can crack open a complimentary beer of soft drink, and chat with your mates about this epic trip.

If you join the full-day tour, you'll go down 12 kilometres into the gorge, and soak up astonishing scenery and numerous rapids along the way. Lunch is provided during this tour, and a soothing beer or soft drink at the end of the day is included.

This tour is recommended for independent backpackers, and it's an excellent opportunity for an awesome team-building adventure with friends. Experienced and professional guides will be there to give you assistance when needed while teaching you control and patience.

If you want to combine natural beauty with a thrilling activity, this might be the right tour for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

The experienced guides run you through an extensive safety briefing before you even hit the water. Once you're in the raft on a calm part of the river, the guides will assess your skills and confidence. Based on their findings and your own confidence level, you'll either be joined by a guide in a twin raft, or get to have your own raft.
