The Tully River is Australia’s best and most famous one-day white water rafting experience. It’s North Queensland’s ultimate white water, white knuckle adventure, with up to 5 hours of rafting over more than 45 rapids through World Heritage Rainforest.

The drive to Tully, 87 miles (140 kilometres) south of Cairns, is a scenic journey through cloud-covered coastal mountains, clear rivers and streams, fields of sugar cane and exotic fruits. Rafting in North Queensland has the advantage of departures all year round, tropical water temperatures and ease of access to compliment breath-taking scenery and rapids.

Rapids include the unforgettable “Alarm Clock”, “Wet and Moisty”, “Stair Case” and the dramatic “Theatre” – all before a riverside BBQ lunch opposite “Ponytail Falls” where time is made to replenish your batteries before the afternoon’s remaining rapids.

All you need to bring is lace-up shoes (that WILL get wet), swimming costume & towel (you will need to have your swimming costume already on when you are picked up), a spare change of clothes and don’t forget the 15+ sunscreen. You will be provided with safety equipment, including life jacket, helmet and spray jacket, a riverside BBQ lunch with tropical fruits, salads, tea, coffee and cool drinks (vegetarians catered for if advised) as well as light refreshments after the trip while viewing the day’s video and photos at Rafters Cafe.

This is one of those experiences that everyone should do at least once in their lifetime! The rain and Tropical Cyclone Nelson made it even better. Our guide was the best ever for our family. Everything was perfect, beautiful, awesome! I plan to do this again in another couple of years.

  1. SWIT Guide says:

    Based from Cardwell on the tropical Cassowary Coast visit Tully Gorge. Ground transportation services access this World Heritage area for multi activity adventure fun. Place Tully River Gorge on your Queensland travel itinerary. This is a “must see and do” North Queensland holiday destination.
