Take a 60 minute drive from Mission beach to the Tully Gorge Rec park. If you are lucky you may see a Cassowary along the way. Change rooms and toilets are available at the start location. This is where we meet you. Here we unload rafts, kit you up and talk you through some handy rafting instruction before pairing you up in your rafts. If you are confident and there are enough rafts we’ll even let you go on your own!
We enter the Tully river in a beautiful calm section of the Gorge. Here our expert guides will show you everything you need to know to become a ‘White water warrior.’ We start off with our ‘practice rapid’. A nice span of small rapids to let you practice your paddling and turns and give you a feel for the water, your raft and for things to come. Our guides will be with you every step of the way. Stretches of calm separates each group of rapids where the sights and sounds of nature connect you back to the wild. Ulysses butterflies, birds of prey and water dragons are a common sight. Focus and you will see so much more as you cruise through 410 million year old rainforests. The scenery alone is worthy of the experience.
As the rapids get a little bigger and trickier, you’ll watch the water currents, dodge rocks, steer your raft to take the rapids head on, crash through a wall of foaming water, and emerge drenched but euphoric at the feeling of the conquest, and eager for more. And more you shall get..…With each rapid comes more confidence, more control and more excitement.
With any luck by the time we load the rafts onto the trailer, the grin on your face may have relaxed enough to wrap your lips around a nice cold beer, Change into some dry clothes, jump in your car and enjoy your beautiful return trip home.
