Your Day at a glance

  • Self drive & meet at the Tully Gorge camping and day use area.
    Change rooms and toilets are available at the Rec park. Here we unload the rafts, kit you up and talk
    you through some handy rafting instruction before pairing you up in your rafts. 
    If you are confident and there are enough rafts we’ll even let you go on your own!
  • We enter the Tully river in a beautiful  calm section of the Gorge. 
    Here our expert guides will show you everything you need to know to become a ‘White water warrior.’
    When we are all happy….the fun begins….
  • We start off with  our ‘practice rapid’. A nice span of small rapids to let you practice your paddling
    and turns and give you a feel for the water, your raft and for things to come. 
    Our guides will be with you every step of the way – showing  you the best way to go and what to look out for.
  • Rapids get a little bigger and trickier, you’ll watch the water currents, dodge rocks, steer your raft to take the
    rapids head on, crash through a wall of foaming water, and emerge drenched but euphoric at the feeling of
    the conquest, and eager for more. With each rapid comes more confidence, more control and more excitement!

What to bring:

  • Change of clothes (wet set/dry set)
  • Plastic bag for wet clothes
  • Towel
  • Baseball cap to fit under your helmet
  • Sunscreen (don’t apply to forehead and back of legs)

Guides were excellent and reassuring for us newbies on 2 man rafts. A great time and the lunch was fabulous.


Sarah Wilcox

Our family (2 adults, 13, 14 and 8 year old) had a great time white water rafting. It was a highlight of our trip. Thank you for making it so fun. The scenery was also spectacular.


Bridget Flynn

Amazing experience, well worth the effort



A fantastic team who looked after us all (family of 5), gave us all an adrenaline packed raft and helped our slightly nervous 6 year old enjoy it and think white water rafting is amazing! Would highly recommend for all.

Head to Tully then turn into Dean Road. Dean Road turns into Tully Gorge Road. Keep Driving for around 45 minutes until you reach the Tully Gorge Camping area.
This is the start point for Wildside Rafting.
Using Google Maps? (not recommended) type in: ' Tully Gorge Camping and Day-use area' and double check you are taken on the Tully Gorge road. DONT leave this road until you get to the day use area (3km's after the big bridge.) If you have hit a dirt road - you are going the wrong way.
