YOUR BIG DAY OUT

The Tully River is a 2 hour drive from Cairns and it’s worth it. We stop along the way to pick up some fresh, local bananas and supply a light breakfast. Once you arrive in the Tully River National Park, our guides will gear you up with all the equipment; wetsuit pants, knee and shin guards, a life jacket, fins and a helmet. Then it’s up to Cardstone Waves, a grade two rapid, where our experienced guides will teach you the basics in river features, how to swim through a rapid and river boarding skills. Once we have you feeling confident, it’s on to begin our Tully River boarding tours.
