What people are saying about Atherton Tablelands

Fabulous afternoon on the river with challenging but manageable rapids for first timers. My boys (12 and 14 years) and I had a fantastic time. Well looked after by our Kiwi guide Ben. Don’t come to Far North Queensland without trying this - would highly recommend.

Great fun, Max our guide was awesome, fun but also educational in that I felt like we had some control of what happened in the boat through his instructions (even though he obviously supported a whole bunch of novices!). Beautiful scenery and fantastic vibe.

Great guides and rapids. We were picked up and dropped off directly to our accomodation in port Douglas with ease. As beginners had an amazing time with the foaming fury cairns adventure group. Would highly recommend to those of all ages.

totally unexpected the thrill and exhaliration from.the experience. we got wetter than expected which added to the fun

So much fun! Goofy but experienced guides. Good amount of swimming spots and exhilarating rapids. Worth it.
