Experience the thrill of the whitewater rapids in the Barron Gorge on this river boarding expedition!
Join us for an unforgettable day of river boarding down the grade 3 whitewater rapids of Barron Gorge.
This tour will take you into the spectacular rainforest for the adventure of a lifetime! Our friendly and professional guides will be there to teach you what to do and ensure your safety and enjoyment.
The destination is just a short 20km drive from the Cairns city area, making this the ideal location for our half day River boarding tours.
When we arrive, you will be geared up by our staff in wetsuit pants, knee and shin guards, a life jacket, fins and a helmet. Our experienced guides will run through a training session, which will teach you the basics in white water and river boarding. They’ll also teach you how to swim through a rapid and how to use the board, as well as some handy tricks and tips.
Once everyone is confident, it’s time to begin the tour and take on the Rapids! There are 11 rapids in the section of Barron River we run, with one grade 3 rapid called the Cheese Churn. We finish off with some river surfing, at Mother In-Law. This half day tour is a great afternoon adventure, it will have you walking away with a huge rush and plenty of self-achievement.
Things to note:
Pick-Ups: We pick up from outside Gilligan's Hostel and the Cairns Night Markets (Abbott Street Side) within the Cairns CBD area. If you are staying outside Cairns and driving a vehicle in, we meet at CanyonBase – Boland St, Bungalow 4870.
