The Tully River 

The Tully River is one of the best rafting rivers in Australia. The river rises in the Cardwell Range on the northern boundary of the Kirrama State Forest. It flows north and crosses Lake Koombooloomba, to then continue over the Tully Falls near Ravenshoe. It descends through the Tully Gorge in the Tully Gorge National Park. This World Heritage-listed park will be our unique rafting setting. The river descends 800 metres (2,600 ft) over its course of 133 kilometres (83 miles). The name Tully comes from river William Alcock Tully, who was Surveyor General of Queensland from 1875 to 1889. 


Expert guides 

A highly trained river guide controls each raft. The guide will teach you the correct techniques during the day and will share interesting facts about the history of this magnificent landscape along the river.
