Whitewater rafting on the Tully River

Tully Gorge National Park, Bronwyn Searle

The Tully River, which descends from the Atherton Tableland through rainforest gorges, is one of Queensland’s three main rafting rivers (the other two are the Barron and North Johnstone). It receives one of the highest annual rainfalls in Australia, explaining its rapids, which are pretty ferocious in parts, and has more than 45 individual rapids up to grade 4. In short, it’s perfect for whitewater rafting.
