Your Day at a glance

  • Self drive & meet at the Tully Gorge camping and day use area.
  • Change rooms and toilets are available at the Rec park. Here we unload the rafts, kit you up and talk you through some handy rafting instruction before pairing you up in your rafts. If you are confident and there are enough rafts we’ll even let you go on your own!
  • We enter the Tully river in a beautiful  calm section of the Gorge. Here our expert guides will show you everything you need to know to become a ‘White water warrior.’ When we are all happy….the fun begins….
  • We start off with  our ‘practice rapid’. A nice span of small rapids to let you practice your paddling and  turns and give you a feel for the water, your raft and for things to come. Our guides will be with you every step of the way – showing  you the best way to go and what to look out for. 
  • Rapids get a little bigger and trickier, you’ll watch the water currents, dodge rocks, steer your raft to take the rapids head on, crash through  a wall of foaming water, and emerge drenched but euphoric  at the feeling of the conquest, and eager for more. With each rapid comes more confidence, more control and more excitement.

A fantastic team who looked after us all (family of 5), gave us all an adrenaline packed raft and helped our slightly nervous 6 year old enjoy it and think white water rafting is amazing! Would highly recommend for all.
