While I have never whitewater rafted in the wild, I am sure that this place would be pretty much the same! It was used for the whitewater kayaking events in the Sydney 2000 Olympics! I have experienced whitewater rafting here, and it was awesome fun! only suggestion is, if you wear contact lenses, wear some swim goggles, because when our raft tipped over at one stage (but it was all safe!) I went under water and didn't want to open my eyes for fear of losing my contacts!
