This was a great day for us despite the abnormally cold weather which forced my wife to pull out at lunch time (even with a wetsuit).
The guide (macca) was a crazy mofo (in a good way) and he was hilarious and certainly made the trip more exciting for us, at one point he managed to fling me from the boat much to his pleasure. If you are booking a day white water rafting and expecting a luxurious stroll down a calm stream you're an idiot. This is travelling down rapids (some a good 6-10ft in size) in an inflatable boat. Of course it's dangerous but these guys are professionals and know what they're doing. We didn't go the extreme option as my wife is a bit of a softy but even the normal version was really good fun and between the carnage of the rapids is some really picturesque scenes along the river.
We also got to see a decent sized amethystine python digesting a big meal on the side of the river and some big water spiders as well as some really cool waterfalls along the river. Lunch was pretty good too.
The only issue with this trip (aside from the weather), is the cost of the pictures. It actually worked out better for us that my wife pulled out at lunch time as she was able to take some great shots of us along the way. But otherwise the pictures are rather expensive and the system they use puts pressure on everyone to buy it. Basically it works so the more people in your raft/group that buy the pictures the cheaper they become. It is $100 for 1 flash drive with pictures then 110 for 2 120 for 3 130 for 4, etc. So if 6 people in a group buy pictures it's $150 total roughly 25 each. But if only 1 buys it's $100.
I think a much fairer system would be something like $20 if you bring your own flash drive and $40 for the company to provide one along with the pictures. This way there is no pressure on people who want or don't want the photos.
