What people are saying about Kuranda

It was MEGA fun. You need some fitness to do this activity. It requires carrying the tube to the river (about 2 minutes walk). My son is 8 and quite fit, he carries his own tube and managed the river by himself because we were drift apart as soon as we enter the river. It's very safe, he capsized twice in the white water section of the river. He managed to stay afloat and get back in the tube on his own as I was too far to help.

From the bus pick up to the bus drop off, it was a highly professional and fun experience. Tom and Carlos went way above and beyond. They were both highly attentive, kind, encouraging and humorous. They made the experience highly safe and fun. My friend and I severely struggled but they were exceedingly helpful. A fun experience. A certain level of fitness required.

Such a fun experience! Our guide Joe was very experienced and knowledgeable, he made it a great laugh for us all. Would 100% recommend.

Enthusiastic guide made the activity more fun. Thrilling during the action but felt entirely safe throughout.
