Barron Rafting RagingThunder Info
Barron River Rafting
The half day white water rafting with Raging Thunder is on the Barron River and includes approximately 2 hours of White Water Rafting.
The Barron River is perfect for anyone who has never tried White Water Rafting or those looking for an afternoon of fun. Your guide will take you on an eco-adventure through the Barron Gorge National Park aboard your 8 person inflatable raft, tackling grade 2 and 3 rapids including the infamous Rooster Tail, where an action photo will be taken.
Plus you’ll get a chance to try raft surfing (dependent on water levels) and to cool off with a swim in Lake Placid.
The rescue 3 trained guides will give you all the tuition needed for this exciting afternoon rafting! No experience is necessary, in fact most people who book this tour have never been rafting before. Your guide will give you comprehensive safety instructions and the world's best Rafts are used.

The rafting was great fun,
The rafting was great fun, and the guides excellent. The only disappointment was the lack of water in the river, and thus the guides having to lift the raft over the rocks on a number of occasions when we were stuck. They even pointed out the the river was well below the normal water line level that day.

we had a ball
As fifty year olds we had a ball. The guides were clear to understand. Very capable in their jobs, making us feel 100% safe. And the interaction with the other people with good nature made us refer this experience to every one down here.

The young men who took us on this trip were marvelous. They did an excellent job, but I would of liked it to last longer for the money spent on the trip.
