Your day of Adventure!
The Tully River is about 2.5 hours south of Cairns and is rated Grade 3 and 4 which means there are exciting rapids and a good chance you will be in the water at some stage during the day. This is the longest Tully River rafting trip available.
You will need to be up bright and early with a 6:30am pick-up from your accommodation, travelling to the upper gorge of the Tully River in an air-conditioned, video equipped coach for approximately 5 hours on the river.
Each raft is controlled by a highly trained river guide, who teaches you the correct techniques during the day, and who will share with you the history and wonders of this magnificent landscape which few get to see.
When you arrive at the river you will be fitted with a helmet and life jacket. You will be given a short briefing then it is into the 8 man raft to spend the next 5 exhilarating hours with a huge smile on your face as you make your way down the rapids.
Lunch is a delicious BBQ on the banks of the river with a chance to take in the spectacular scenery. Follow this with more action in the foaming white water of the lower gorge.
The entertainment does not stop there - you return to the exclusive Raging Thunder Cafe where screams of laughter abound as you watch the day's action on video before you and your memories return home. It really is a very memorable, fun day with beautiful scenery running the length of the river. Photos are available at the cafe after the thrilling day.
For those who wish to self drive from Cairns and Mission Beach, you will need to meet the guides at the Rafters Café (Banana Barracks) located at 50 Butler St in Tully no later than 8:30am. Please note you will not be able to drive your own car to the top of the river, as the tour does not return to this point after the trip.
The minimum age for Tully rafting is 13 years.

Great staff!! The guys were really nice to teach us the basics. I wish I did the Extreme b/c the boats moved quite slow b/c they waited for each other.

At 68 and over weight,and not as agile as I could have been, I thought I might have been a bit passed it, but everyone was terrific. No one made me feel out of it, or a burden. What a wonderful experience. Thanks team

A great day out, even though it rained most of the day. Good hosts who gave the impression they really wanted you to enjoy yourself.

We had great time for rafting, I enjoyed it so much. The water level is very high because of the weather so that makes the trip more exciting!

Did the rafting years ago and the rapids were better then but that would be due to the change in the river due to floods over the years. Still it was a great day out. My Girlfriend loved it.

Had a fantastic day. Our team leader catered to the needs of our individual group and his expertise and calm manner helped us to feel safe. Only suggestion - it was impossible to hear the safety points on the bus as our speaker was full of static.

The experience of the guides was invaluable. They were friendly and knew what they were doing. The lunch could be improved - more organised and more different basic drinks available. We had a great time overall and it was one of the highlights of our holiday.

Thank you for coming back to me for my feedback. I booked a white-water rafting tour through Travstar. Every step of the booking to the drop-off after the tour went like clock-work. I was very happy with the tour because each member of my family enjoyed ourselves.
I shall have no hesitation in recommending Travstar to my friend/family. I shall certainly use you again because of the positive experience.
