What to Expect
Begin your tour with pickup from your Cairns or Port Douglas hotel and a short transfer to Lake Placid in Barron Gorge National Park. On arrival, get suited up in your safety gear, listen to the safety briefing, and learn the basics of paddling and balancing the raft. Once you’re ready, climb aboard and set out along the Barron River. Admire the stunning scenery as you paddle through the Barron Gorge, beneath soaring cliffs, steep ravines, and dense rain forest. Glide downstream, picking up speed as you pass over Class II and III rapids, and tackle tricky river passages with the help of your guide. Afterward, return to shore, where a driver will be waiting to take you back to your hotel.
