We took our young kids and had a fantastic day out. Pete is a great character and a really good tour guide. We weren't sure how our kids would go with the river rapids but it was perfect, with a bit of fun for us adults too. The scenery is beautiful - just a really relaxing experience. My only suggestion... More

Saw the previous reviews and just had to chime in. We had a very different experience with our guide. Pete, our guide, was truly horrible. It started with the van pick up. He became irate when one of the passengers called to find out if they could bring a 3 year old. He just went off about the "stupidity of... More

My aim is to show people this amazing place in a safe and fun manor which I have done with many happy customers and no incidents since I started Aussie Drifterz seven years ago. Sadly, this wasn't the case for you. Let's be honest, I wasn't having the best day, I admit that. Sometimes it's hard to stay happy and... More

We all had a fantastic time today, including our 8 year old daughter who can be a real chicken. It's a relaxing atmosphere and a great way to chill out. Thanks Pete!

We've had an awesome day out on the tubes with our three teenage children. There was the fun rapid rides and the gentle slow drift down the river. We all enjoyed it immensely !!

Went there with a friend of mine. Was the second time for me after 4 years. Still loving it had a really good day. The tourguide is a really nice guy and up for some fun. Totally worth the money!

I walked away from this experience thinking WOW how lucky I was to experience this beautiful and tranquil setting that Queensland has to offer. Just floating down the river in a tube enjoying the calming, beautiful and peaceful surrounds. If more people got off the tourist trap of the big experiences and just enjoyed a day outing with Aussie Drifters... More

Had such a fun day with our family and Pete as our tour guide. Relaxing and fun in equal measures. You bob along down the river on your tube and it's quite exciting over the fast bits and lovely and peaceful on the slow bits. Pete was funny and helpful. If you find a brochure book direct. Otherwise the travel... More

We had a great afternoon relaxing and cursing on the river. A few small rapids added a bit of excitement. Very well organised. Our guide, Pete, was a lot of fun and we always felt safe. Highly recommended.

Suitable for all ages, this adventure was fun for all. We saw heaps of wildlife and Pete (the person who runs the show) was engaging, funny and a great guy. The actual experience itself was both relaxing and interesting - with some fun rapids and really chilled slow windey parts it's suitable for everyone. Each person in our family loved... More

I really enjoy bush walking, but floating down the river in a tube through this tranquil setting was fantastic! You get to enjoy the scenery without all the hard work. Pete was great, we had a wonderful time! I Highly recommend the experience.
