About Aussie Drifterz Rainforest Tubing Tours

Aussie Drifterz Rainforest Tubing Tours

Aussie Drifterz Rainforest Tubing Tours

Cairns’ original half day tubing tours operate in two of the best rainforest locations in town, Behana Gorge and the Mulgrave River. We’ll pick the best one to maximize your fun, pending conditions at the time of travel.

Tubing is a fun, safe water activity, which combines adventure and action, set amongst towering trees, on freshwater streams.

Behana Gorge is billed as a locals’ secret, it’s where we come to play and get away. Think stunning natural rainforest, an arching canopy of trees and gently tumbling cold waters and you’re almost there. The Mulgrave River provides small, fun rapids and a lovely natural backdrop.

The half day rainforest tubing tours depart Cairns daily and provide approximately two (2) hours of tubing fun. Fully supervised, with a minimum of two (2) guides on the water, all equipment and instruction is provided. This is a fun, safe water activity conducted on professional, high quality, twin chamber tubes. Suitable for people of all experience levels, aged between 5 and 70 years old. No previous tubing experience necessary.

What can you expect? To spend a delightful couple of hours floating gently down a pristine, rainforest stream soaking in the sights, sounds and smells of the natural beauty that surround you. This is the perfect way to cool down and really immerse yourself in Cairns’ rainforest environment and experience. A little bit of action, a little bit of adventure and a whole lot of good times!

It’s perfect for solo travelers, groups of friends and/or families travelling together. It’s the most fun you can have while floating! For more info check our brochure.

Tour departures may vary between AM & PM. We usually schedule an AM departure but will run a PM trip pending demand and time of year.

Aussie Drifterz Rainforest Tubing Tours Reviews


Miranda Starr

Such an amazing family tour. We did this with our 6 and 10 year old sons. As a family that float down the creek or kayak ourselves we were surprised at how much more fun it was to go with these guys. They take you down rapids you might not think about doing on your own and get you to the end safely. The two guides were fantastic and made the day great the moment we stepped on the bus. My hats of to the guides for chasing all of us around the creek to make sure we were in the right position for a good time. The scenery and crystal clear creek is just one bonus to the tour. Highly recommend this to people with kids or without. AMAZING!!


Sam Day

An amazing getaway for the day escaping into a pristine rainforest creek. Perfect mix of relaxing drifting and some exciting little rapids. The sections of the river get more and more amazing. Truly an immersive rainforest experience and the guides were heaps of fun. Defs recommend.
