Cairns is lucky enough to have the Barron River located just 20 minutes away, with their half day white water raft adventure leaving you plenty of time to enjoy other activities on the same day. The rapids on the Barron River are of grade two to three which means they are simple technical rapids with a need to manoeuvre the raft, which results in great rafting for first timers. Please use this as a guide when choosing your level of adrenaline rush, but remember that experience is not necessary; in fact most guests have never been rafting before.
