ShoreTrips says...

Trade the hustle and bustle of the city for an exhilarating river-rafting adventure on the Barron River, just a 20-minute ride from town.

The beautiful Barron Gorge National Park is known for its rugged rainforest mountains, steep ravines, Barron Falls and the Barron Gorge, providing the perfect setting for this exhilarating rafting adventure.

Before boarding your raft, you'll be fitted with all the gear needed for a fun, safe ride. Your guide will give you some pointers, then it's off to the river!

The diverse topography provides a delightful combination of experiences. From calm water, where you'll have time to admire the scenery, to a series of white water rapids produced as the Barron River snakes its way down from the mountains and heads out to the Coral Sea, you're guaranteed a day of action and adventure.

You might encounter the adrenaline rush of up to Grade 3 rapids, which entails irregular waves, narrow channels and some maneuvering to avoid obstacles. But not to worry, your experienced guide will navigate you safely through each thrilling rapids encounter.

  • This Tour Includes:
  • Round trip transportation from the cruise ship pier or your hotel
  • Professional river guide
  • Helmet, life jacket, and safety briefing
  • Two hours of rafting on up to grade 3 rapids
  • An unforgettable adrenaline rush!
