What we will do

Want to spend the afternoon tackling some epic white water rapids at face level?

Then join us on the Barron River. This is a great afternoon trip full of extreme adventure on grade 2-3 rapids surrounded by tropical Rainforest. Our guides will teach everything you need to know and will guide you through the rapids, but by jumping in the drivers seat of your individual white water river board you walk away feeling not only exhilarated but also get a huge burst self achievement.

Once everyone is confident, its time to begin our Barron River boarding 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. The half day Barron River boarding tour is a great afternoon adventure, that will have you walking away with a huge rush and plenty of self-achievement.

(Price excludes $25 Levy for National parks land management Fees, water release fees, transfer fees, and administration costs)
