Very good pricing for a fun lazy day on the river. Have gone many times every summer. Rocks can add a challenge if it hasent rained much but doesn't make it any less fun. Beware of the "gum trees".

Alot of fun and inexpensive for the whole family!! Even safe for my 4-year old (we strapped her tube to one of ours). Bring a pole or a long stick if you have one to help you steer your tubes. Else you can rent from the tubing company.

If you go during dry season be aware that your bottom will drag the bottom of the river in some places slowing you do, or even stranding you. :P
