Join us for this Half Day Rafting Barron River tour in the Barron Gorge National Park. Located only 20 minutes from the centre of Cairns (40 minutes ex-Port Douglas). Barron Gorge National Park is known for its rugged rainforest mountains, steep ravines, the mighty Barron Falls and of course, Barron Gorge, which has been carved out over thousands of years by the Barron River.
This is where we do our half day white water rafting tour, on the ebb and flow of the Barron River, as it snakes its way down from the mountains and heads out to the Coral Sea. This is a scenic rafting and rainforest adventure which combines calm water floating with a series of white water rapids for adventure and action.
The Half Day Rafting Barron River is a fantastic introduction to White Water Rafting. It’s fun, exciting and exhilarating, suitable for all the family*. Enjoy up to two hours rafting, on up to grade 3 rapids.
Our rafts carry up to seven passengers plus your river guide. No experience necessary.
Let our guides entertain you on this spectacular river, offering guaranteed water levels year round!
