As the weather wasn’t great in cairns we decided to book onto the rafting with raging thunder!
We honestly had the best day, non stop laughing and so much fun! The river and surrounding area was beautiful and we had the best guide; Riley! I would highly recommend for a fun day out. It was our favourite trip we’ve done so far!
