Whitewater rafting on the Barron River

Take an adrenalin-inducing whitewater rafting trip through the gorges of the Barron River. It’s a ride wilder than those at any Gold Coast theme park! Navigate your way through renowned rapids including ‘Rooster Tail', 'Cheese Churn' and 'Hells Gate'. The rapids are graded 2-3 and include two sections which are particularly challenging. In the calmer sections you can relax and take in your surrounds which include waterfalls and dense, old-growth rainforest. An experienced and highly skilled rafting guide will ensure that your trip will be safe and filled with fun and excitement as you take on the rapids of Barron River. Special Notes: To make sure your adventure is as enjoyable as possible wear comfortable, flat-soled shoes, clothing appropriate to the weather conditions, bring a hat, plenty of sunscreen and bottled water.
