As an Olympic level sport, rafting has become one of the top-rated recreational extreme sports. Battling huge waves, rocks, fast turns, rocky riverbeds and intense climatic conditions is no easy feat, but with it comes exhilaration, skill honing and a great experience for all.
White water rafting works on a system of grades from 1 through to 6. First-timers may prefer a grade one ride where negotiation is easy and turns, if any, are gentle, while dab hands at white water rafting may prefer a higher grade where control of the raft and team work is essential to escape the rapids.
A number of operators in Queensland offer rides from grade 1 to 4 along the Tully and Barron River. With bends and turns named ‘Mother-in-Law’ and ‘Mine Field’ you are guaranteed not only a great day out but memories for life. If you prefer to have more control over Mother Nature however, you can try a white water rafting experience in Sydney which has a man-made white river course, allowing you to experience white water rafting without worrying about currents and undertows.
Whatever you decide, white water rafting offers you a thrilling experience like none other as you allow the water beneath you to determine your course.
