The Family Rafting Half Day Tour is a fantastic introduction to White Water Rafting. This fun and exciting tour is designed for children aged 6 – 11 years and operates on the lower section of the Barron River rapids and Lake Placid, in the Barron Gorge National Park.
This stunning national park is just 20 minutes from Cairns city (40 minutes from Port Douglas) and is known for its spectacular World Heritage listed Rainforest, scenic mountain ranges and of course the Gorge itself, which has been carved out over thousands of years by the flowing waters of the Barron River.
The Half Day Family Rafting Tours in the Barron River is the perfect introduction to children’s rafting. 8 person rafts & 2 person sports rafts are used to experience both styles of rafting during your trip.
