Just had a great day with my family (2 boys five and six)! Our river guides mikey and Matt! We're the best! So much fun - we even saw wild horses, snake (on the road) and wild pigs! Thanks guys - highly highly recommend! They even answered all my boys crazy questions!

Not sure why this hasn't been reviewed in so long as it's definitely running! Myself and my family went out on Behana gorge last week with Aussie Drifterz and had the most amazing time. The guides were all so much fun and the gorge is just stunning, crystal clear waters and rainforest tunnels to float through. I would highly recommend... More

Having visited far north Queensland several times, we were looking for something differenent this time around and the manager at our hotel recommended Aussie Drifterz. It was a lovely way to spend a morning off the beaten track and we enjoyed the change of scenery and tranquil beauty of the gorge. Pete is a real character, he is clearly loving... More

This was an amazing get away from all the crowds. The experience was beautiful with a touch of fun with the rapids. There's no added cost which makes it one of a kind these days with fresh fruit with some sugar like Tim Tams at a little bay you stop at where there is also a rope for you to... More

After enjoying the more mainstream tourist activities in Cairns, this was a nice, relaxing way to spend half a day at the end of our trip. We were lucky that it was just our family on the day that we went, but the downside was that the water level was lower than normal so there were a few sections I... More

Altogether a great experience, beautiful setting and a down-to-earth tour guide. Just remember to get cash out to pay before you hop on the bus, otherwise you will have to pay the atm fees at the service station you stop at on the way to the river.

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
