Tully River Rafting Info


Raft the mighty Tully River, regarded as the best rafting river across Australia and New Zealand.  Go Wild with the first company to raft the Tully back in 1985... Raging Thunder offers an excellent full day of white water rafting on the Tully River. 

Each raft holds a maximum of seven passengers and one 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.

The river is rated a Grade 3-4, which means there are some exciting rapids and guaranteed water levels all year round.  It really is a very memorable, fun day with the World Heritage rainforest providing an unforgettable backdrop.
