Your RAFT & Safety
Each raft holds a maximum of seven passengers and one river guide, who will guide you safely down your river adventure. Infact every one of our guides is expertly trained by internationally renowned safety company Rescue 3.
When you arrive at the river you will be fitted with a helmet and life jacket, allowing you to float along the river should you happen to fall out. Its so safe that you don't even have to be able to swim to enjoy rafting. Plus all of our rafts stay together, traversing the rapids in a carefully planned sequence with guides providing cover from the river banks.

Barron Half Day Rafting
The Barron River Gorge is located 20 minutes' drive north of Cairns and lies along a traditional pathway used by the original indigenous Djabugay people. The spectacular Barron Falls, further upstream, are considered a sacred site. The famous Kuranda Railway and Skyrail Cableway also traverse sections of the gorge.
