Full Day Rafting Russell River (Seasonal)

Pack rafting coming soon, check out RNR Rafting Facebook Page.

The only way to experience pristine rainforest, crystal clear rivers and breathtaking scenery is to take a white water rafting trip with an experienced company like Foaming Fury. This is not a trip for your average couch potato!

Just an hour south of Cairns, Foaming Fury 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 2 man sports rafts are deflated and share carried in to the start of the river, this all adds to the hands on adventure. Follow a single file track through the lush rainforest of Wooroonooran National Park to get to the crystal clear waters of the Russell River. After 3 hours of exhilarating white water rafting it’s time to relax and enjoy a picnic lunch at the beautiful Golden Hole area.

On the river, Sports 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. Our Sports Rafts are super stable. Anyone can do it!
