The Russell River is located 60 kilometres to the south of Cairns in Far North Queensland. The headwaters of the Russell River lie in the shadow of Mount Bartle Frere, Queensland’s highest peak, just outside of Mirawinni. An experience on the Russell River is much more than just rafting. 2 man sports rafts are carried down to the river on a single file track that used to be an Aboriginal fishing trail, and through the lush rainforest of Wooroonooran National Park. This all adds to the hands on adventure. After loading into boats you will get to enjoy three hours of continuous rafting which will take you through exciting rapids like “Pinball”, “The Three Stooges”, and “Rollercoaster”. Midway through the day, the boats pull over and boaters walk single-file through a small rock corridor to emerge in the middle of a thundering waterfall. Later in the day, the river narrows and flows through a small, steep-walled, basaltic gorge. Guides will sometimes stop at certain points to take advantage of great spots for rock jumping and for swimming in quieter currents.
Sports Rafting takes place on the Barron and Russell River. Sports rafts carry two passengers and are group guided under strict river guide supervision. The advanced features of these crafts ensure stability so that you can confidently enjoy the excitement of white water. Skilled guides will show you how best to negotiate the rapids while they maintain a very safe environment in which you can enjoy the thrills. Departures are daily from Cairns and the Northern Beaches. Minimum age is 13 years.
