5 Day Lower Franklin River Rafting Expedition
This five-day wilderness adventure explores the lower forty kilometres of the Franklin River World Heritage Area. Following an early breakfast, we board our four-wheel drive vehicle for an exciting and spectacular trip over Mt. McCall to the river. After packing the rafts and a safety talk we head down Propsting Gorge and through the exciting Trojans rapids before arriving at Rock Island Bend to tackle the famous Newland's Cascades. This section will have everyone whooping with delight as we plunge through a maelstrom of spray and whitewater. At rapids'-end is a place for a deserved break. On the bank, natural overhangs provide the ideal shelter. As well as some exciting rafting, you will enjoy days of easy paddling where you will have plenty of time to take in the serenity of this unique region and explore some of its caves and side creeks. This tour is ideal for families with young children and to get a 'Taste of the Franklin River'. A reasonable level of fitness is important and should improve your enjoyment of this trip.
