What to Expect

On arrival, get suited up in your safety gear, listen to the safety briefing, and learn the basics of paddling and balancing the raft. Once you’re ready, climb aboard and set out along the Barron River. Admire the stunning scenery as you paddle through the Barron Gorge, beneath soaring cliffs, steep ravines, and dense rain forest. Glide downstream, picking up speed as you pass over Class II and III rapids, and tackle tricky river passages with the help of your guide. Afterward, return to shore, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.

White water rafting on the Barron river with cairns adventure group and foaming fury was so much fun. Loved the rapids, going overboard (on purpose) and floating down the river, churning it up in the surf all while surrounded by amazing scenery. Our guide, Jason, was fantastic.
