Itinerary

About the mighty Tully River

The Tully River is located at the foot of Mount Tyson, two hours south of Cairns, where it receives one of the highest annual rainfalls in Australia – a staggering 4200 mm (14 foot). The Tully River descends from the Cairns (Atherton) Tablelands through stunning gorges. This abundance of rain creates swift and exciting rapids, making it one of the best whitewater rafting rivers in Australia. The Tully River is one of three main rafting rivers in North Queensland (the others are at Barron River and North Johnstone) and have more than 45 individual rapids graded up to grade 4.
