Different from the standard Carins tours
Nov 2021 • Couples
My partner and I booked this activity as a half day tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. The guides we had, Tom and Carlos I couldn’t recommend enough! If you get those two you’re in for a really fun, light hearted time. Tom knew a lot about the surrounding area that we were travelling through and had a lot of interesting information to share. The tubing was pretty fun as well, I would recommend it if you want to do something a bit different from the usual cairns tours and for a bit of fun. I would say that if you’re uncomfortable with the water or not at a reasonable fitness level I would not recommend this for you.

It’s definitely a fun experience and I would do it again!

Just do it
Nov 2021 • Family
This is a great adventure for the whole family and value for money. Kristian and Hannah were awesome tour guides, giving just enough information to allow all to enjoy. Our whole family aged 11 to 57 jumped off the bridge and would recommend to anyone who would like a small family adventure. Goodbye Cairns we loved it stay.

Great way to spend a morning
Nov 2021
We had a fantastic morning out, enjoying the beautiful river and picturesque mountain scenery. It was the perfect trip to do on the last day of our holiday, letting us squeeze another memorable experience in, and prolonging the disappointment of leaving Cairns. Thanks again to our guides Marco and Jordan, who looked after us and made it fun.

Fun Tubing Adventure
Sep 2021 • Family
On a recommendation from friends my son and I tried River Tubing
We were staying at Port Douglas so it was an early start to reach the Cairns Office but well worth it.
After a bus trip to the Mulgrave River the crew of Carlos, Jordan and Hannah provided all the equipment required and demonstrated what we needed to do to be safe on the river
Then it was time to hit the water
The Crew were advising where to head and sometimes what to expect
It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience which included a half time jump off the bridge before heading down the river again
Highly recommend Aussie Drifterz for a fun morning of tubing
