    Love nature? Love water? In this tour, you can enjoy both! Step into a lush Queensland rainforest where you’ll find crystal clear waters flowing calmly through the trees. On this unique snorkelling tour you’re invited to wade into the cool river, a welcome relief in the heat of the tropics. Let the current take you as you immerse yourself in the world beneath the water’s surface. Watch as the fish swim in and around you and keep a watchful eye out for turtles.

    This is an activity that the entire family will love and an ideal stepping stone if you’re planning to snorkel in the ocean reefs. Smaller children will enjoy travelling down the river on a river sled. During the dry season this river tour is appropriate for all ages, however during the wet season it is only recommended for strong swimmers.
