Rafting the Tully River

This is one of Australia’s best one day rafting trips with plenty of rapids and the good weather, towering rainforests and clear water Queensland is known for. The 45 (approx.) sets of Tully River rapids are about class three or four, but it’s a bumpy ride with white water for much of the five hour trip and there are some spectacular waterfalls and gorges on the lower end of the trip.

If you’re lucky you’ll finish your trip at Mission Beach where the Tully joins the ocean. This is a really idyllic place to sit and relax after all the excitement with bright blue water and pristine sand. If you haven’t ever been rafting before you’ll still be able to paddle Tully with one of the guided trips (which can still be pretty exciting as long as the rafts aren’t too big.).
