Your tubing adventure on the Mulgrave River begins with hotel pickup in Cairns or the Northern Beaches by coach for the drive to the starting point. Part of the catchment system for Queensland’s highest mountains, Bellenden Ker and Bartle Frere, the Mulgrave River flows year-round and is bordered by rainforest and tropical vegetation, creating a lush natural backdrop for your tour, which combines calm water drifting and small rapids that you’ll float across on a twin-chamber tube.

During your two hours on the water, you’ll be accompanied by a minimum of two guides, certified by the International Rafting Federation, which sets standards in the rafting industry. Regular training in river rescue and first aid ensures guides maintain high safety standards on every tour.

One snack is included. This tour is suitable for people of all experience levels and provides a great introduction to river tubing with gentle rapids and the natural scenery of Tropical North Queensland.
