I had a fantastic time riding up and down the Barron River while Warren explained everything as it went by. He is very nice and very knowledgeable about the river and the rain forest. Thank you for the wonderful tour Warren!

A visit to Kuranda should include a Cruise on the Barron River. The cruise includes an expert commentary, opportunity to spot wildlife and take great photos.
