Located just 20 minutes from Cairns, the Barron River has plenty of Grade 3 rapids available - perfect for the beginner and a great half day adventure!


Spend a fun filled day white water rafting down the Barron River! The river is perfect for beginners, as well as more experienced rafters as you tackle grade 2 and 3 rapids, including the awesome Rooster Trail. Spend the afternoon swimming in the stunning Lake Placid or have a go at raft surfing if the water is high enough. 

  • Swim in the beautiful Lake Placid
  • Enjoy a guided eco-adventure through the Barron Gorge National Park
  • Tackle grade 2 and 3 level rapids
  • Shoot down the infamous Rooster Trail
  • Go raft surfing!


After departing Cairns at 2pm, you will then take the 30 minute, scenic drive up the Barron Gorge Valley. Once you're up at the Top of the River, you will have your safety briefing and gear up before jumping in your rafts!

Once in the raft, you will navigate through a series of fun, grade 2 and 3 rapids to the bottom of the river, finishing at Lake Placid where you can have a final swim.

After this, you will arrive at our afternoon tea location for a coffee or tea, and to view photos of the day’s action before returning to Cairns at around 6.00pm.


$25 Raft Levy is payable on the day of travel.


What to bring:

- Lace up shoes (Shoes available for hire)

- Change of clothes

- Towel

- Suncreen

Please note: Rafting is not suitable for anyone who is pregnant



"I booked a day tour to the Great Barrier Reef with Travel Freedom, and I honestly can't believe how amazing it was! I was snorkelling with Nemo, next to turtles, and I went diving for the first time! I never thought I would see the reef, and it was so cheap to do so! Thanks to Travel Freedom for their service, which was fast, helpful, and easy!"

Laura Taylor (UK)

"I went to see the Daintree rainforest for a day with Travel Freedom and it was beautiful. It was a very relaxing day and I saw a crocodile. I recommend this tour to anyone with some time in Cairns."

Neke Den Boer (NL)
