River Journeys to remember

There are trips where you spend a few days walking through remote wilderness at a comfortable pace, but sometimes you need to feel your heart pound and catch a lump in your throat. If you’re after the latter, here are our top river journeys guaranteed to get your heart pumping as you navigate through stunning waterway wilderness.  
 

 

Franklin River

There are few great frontiers left in the world and the Franklin is one of them. Free of pasture and any human habitation, it is a veritable feast for the intrepid explorer. Rafting down this superb river is the only way to truly appreciate its wild beauty. It is acknowledged as one of the most spectacular and challenging river trips around, attracting adventurers from all over the world. The opportunity of an expedition-style trip, rather than merely "thrills and spills" makes this the ultimate wilderness experience. Like all great expeditions, there will be times when patience is required. However, you will be one of the privileged few to have experienced this relatively untouched wilderness area - one of Australia's most scenic and prized destinations.

Snowy River Rafting

The Snowy is an exceptional river. Despite being one of the most iconic rivers in Australia, many sections have rarely been seen since European occupation, which makes the area one of the few places in Australia with undisturbed Aboriginal occupation sites. The broad isolated granite gorges, abundant evidence of previous Indigenous occupancy and plentiful wildlife give this place an undeniable spiritual quality.  A kayaking trip down the Snowy River reveals its true exceptional beauty as you raft down heart-pumping rapids, taking in the tranquility of the river and spending evenings listening to the many sounds of the unique ecosystem.

Murray River

What the Murray River lacks in thrills and spills compared to the Snowy River or the Franklin River, it makes up for in sheer remote beauty. Recognised as Australia’s longest and most iconic river, it meanders past ancient red gum forests and spectacular floodplain wetlands over an incredible 2,700kms. And while you may not have time to explore the entire length, there are options to explore the river by foot along its banks, spending evenings on board a comfortable houseboat that provides a hot shower and a top deck spa before you dine on three courses of superb Riverland cuisine from a menu designed exclusively by a renowned native food chef. Savour local brews, Riverland wine and cider, Riverland roasted coffee and local chocolate while surrounding yourself in the breathtaking wilderness of the Murray River both by foot and by houseboat.
