The Tully River hosted the International Rafting Federation’s 2019 World Rafting Championships. This world class river provides a pinnacle rafting experience, with over 45 rapids ripping down through the stunning rainforest gorge surrounds. Classified as a Grade 3/4 river, the Tully provides one hell of a wild ride which ticks all the boxes for those seeking the ultimate Australian rafting adventure.
This rainforest river slices through the gorge, swirling waters surge over and around giant granite boulders. For the in-between moments, there’s time to appreciate the towering trees, climbing palms and thick rainforest which has dominated this landscape for a thousand years. We even get the chance to rock climb and boulder jump beside and into the river.
The Tully River’s tropical location means the water is warm all year round and there’s even the chance to raft under a rainforest waterfall. She’s wild, she’s beautiful, she’s a must-raft destination – the Tully River.
