Tackle Whitewater intimately, in a one or two person sports raft which brings you closer to the water so you get maximum thrill. The challenging grade 2-3 rapids make for a wild descent. Plummeting between intricate rock formations will certainly ensure your adrenalin hits overdrive..
After your adrenalin rush enjoy a relaxing swim in the pristine pools and the amazing birdlife and savor the majestic scenery including view across the Kosciusko National Park and Tom Groggin Station! We will begin our adventure at our crystal clear swimming hole, where your guides will prepare you, for your white water journey. Before we get on the river, there will be a safety breifling so you will know everything you need to know about paddling your own self emptying sports raft safely.
Our professional and trained river guides accompany every trip, providing entertainment and safety for the entire group. Throughout the day you will receive continuous instruction, describing how to maneuver your sports raft and explanations of river running technique.
It is affordable; nail biting, exhilarating and a great way to cool off this summer. With rapids ranging from grade 2 to 3, there is something for everyone on this river.
