This part of their tour will depart from Cairns at approximately 3.55am and return at around 10.15am.

Perfect for first-timers, this white water rafting experience will have them soaring down the river and tackling the rapids as they come at them from every angle.

Providing plenty of thrills and excitement, Barron River is located in the Barron Gorge National Park and is surrounded by lush rainforests bordering the river. Producing grade 2 - 3 rapids, they'll receive tuition before their adventure to ensure they have the confidence to take on the fun that awaits. This part of their tour will depart at approximately 1.30pm and return at 6pm.

A great way to discover a different side of Cairns, this Hot Air Ballooning and White Water Rafting package showcase the beautiful rainforests and valleys Cairns has to offer. A $30 per person balloon levy and a $30 per person rafting levy are not included in the price of this package and are only payable directly to the tour operator on the day of their tour.
