Rafting on the Barron River was an awesome experience. We felt very safe in the hands of our guide. The rapids were just right for us as beginner rafters and the river had a great mix of gentle rapids to more complex ones. We were also allowed to hope out of the raft and just let our body drift with the river. It was so peaceful and the surrounds so picturesque. Would love to do it again. Just wished I'd taken my GoPro although the photos taken by the company were good.

It was such a fun experience for us. We had our 11 years old daughter and they made sure not only she was safe that she had so much fun. The course is pretty good, beautiful nature and the duration is long enough so by the time you are done you had enough rafting. I highly recommend this activity while in that area.
