Had a great day on the Barron River. Well run with an excellent guide. Was a lot of fun and managed to get a swim in which was nice. The surfing in the rapid was another highlight. Photos were very reasonably priced. Only improvement I can suggest is more info up front about where to leave valuables particularly if you self-drive.

Make sure to let your River Guide know if you’re nervous or if you’re really enthusiastic about the day, then they can tailor the trip more to suit your expectations..

You’re going to need your energy today! Because we travel about 2 hours South of Cairns to get to the Tully River, it’s a good idea to have some breakfast before your pick up in the morning.
