As soon as we hopped on the boat Warren steered the boat across the river to get up close to ‘Priscilla’ the Cassowary who happened to be in the area. Unbelievable experience! We were incredibly lucky to spend almost 10 minutes watching her before she moved away. Warren then

Warren was a lovely guide who took us on a relaxing little cruise down the Barron River. We fed the fish and turtles and heard about the native flora and fauna. Nice little cruise - very reasonably priced

This is a very tame Baron River cruise with not much to view. Even though our guide was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable it was still not very exciting. It is a nice type of cruise for little children to experience but we were disappointed.

Sorry to hear you were disappointed with the cruise you went on. We advertise our tours as a calm water rainforest river cruise on the Barron River in Kuranda. Most people appreciate the beauty of the environment and the wildlife that lives in and around the river.

Thank you very much for your review. The freshwater crocodiles are not always seen, due to them being wild creatures. There's no guarantee on what wildlife will be around during our cruises though the rainforest environment is always beautiful.
