Mission Beach: Tully River White Water Sports Rafting

1. Mission Beach: Tully River White Water Sports Rafting

Your tour begins at the Tully Gorge camping and day use area. You’ll meet your experienced wild guides for the day, before taking a 45-minute informative drive from the beach (or Tully) along the beautiful winding Tully Gorge Road. This road will lead into the World Heritage National Park to the Tully Gorge Recreational Park. Once there,  you'll unload the rafts before being kitted up and run through some handy rafting instruction and pairing up in your raft. You'll first enter the Tully River in a beautiful calm section of the gorge. There, your expert guides will show you everything you need to know to become a "white water warrior". Once confident in your rafting abilities, you'll start off with a "practice rapid"; a nice span of small rapids to let you practice your paddling and turns and give you a feel for both the water and your raft. Your guides will be with you every step of the way, showing you the best way to travel and what to look out for. The scenery alone is worthy of the experience, but don’t get too distracted as there will always be rapids approaching. The rapids will get a little bigger and trickier and will see you watching the water currents, dodging rocks, steering your raft to take the rapids head on, crashing through a wall of foaming water, and emerging drenched but euphoric at the feeling of the conquest. With each rapid comes more confidence, more control, and more excitement. Once you have loaded the rafts onto the trailer, it will be time to toast to your thrilling experience with a nice cold beer, before you change into some dry clothes and to head back home.
