Full Day Pack Rafting (Russell River)

STAY TUNED – This tour is currently in production and will be available soon.

Pack Rafting is the latest craze sweeping the globe and RnR mini expeditions are excited to offer full day packrafting tours for the first time in QLD. This is the only way to experience pristine rainforest, crystal clear rivers and breathtaking scenery and to be one of the first people to take a pack rafting trip with an experienced company like RnR mini expeditions.

This is not a trip for your average couch potato!

You will hike through breathtaking rainforest and wade through crystal clear creeks following an ancient aboriginal fishing trail to the river. This 1hr hike is immersive and a fully guided, upon arrival you will find spectacular grade 3-4 rafting waiting to be tackled.

Just an hour south of Cairns, RnR has created a rafting dream on the Russell River. It’s affordable, nail biting and exhilarating! With rapids ranging from grade 1 to 4, there is something for everyone on this river.

Please note a reasonable (medium) level of fitness is required for this tour, as is a comprehensive understanding of English. The tour is suitable for rafters of all experience levels, from beginner to advanced.

The 1 man pack rafts are light and rugged, they are deflated and carried in to the start of the river along with your lunch and an inflation bag (total weight 4.5 kgs), All this adds to the hands on adventurous nature of this mini expedition. Follow a single file track through the lush rainforest of Wooroonooran National Park to get to the crystal clear waters of the Russell River 3 hours of exhilarating white water rafting, lunch on the river bank and ample opportunities to swim are just some of the highlights.

On the river, Pack Rafts are group guided. Skilled guides show you how best to negotiate the rapids while maintaining a very safe environment in which you can enjoy the thrills and sometimes spills. Our Pack Rafts are super stable but make no mistake your driving it so………..
