Must do- Great relaxing tour!

This tour was a great first stop in Kuranda after getting off the skyrail. Weather was great, the tour guide, Kim, knew a lot of information and fun facts. We even saw multiple crocs, and got to feed fish/turtles and much more. Highly suggest!

Beautiful and peaceful meander down the river

Loved the swallows flying around the boat, seeing the turtles and the crocs (freshwater so not too big thank goodness). Realaxed knowledgeable commentary.
