Tully

Urban

Tully is a small town about 140 kilometres (or about two hours’ drive) south of Cairns and has the reputation of being one of the wettest towns in Australia. With all that rain, the nearby Tully River is one of the best places in Australia to go white water rafting. The Tully River has excellent rapids that range Grade Three to the more challenging Grade Four.

Tully is also one of Queensland’s largest sugar cane and banana producers and is very popular with the backpacker market who work seasonally on the farms. And don’t forget to stop by for a photo of the 7.9 metre tall ‘Golden Gumboot’!
