It is important that you check with us prior to booking as some operators place an age restriction on rafting for safety reasons. With an abundance of rafting options Australia can satisfy all types of white water enthusiasts, from a day on a relatively sedate river to a few days on a rip roaring grade 5 river system. Grade 1 rivers offer fairly tranquil waters, while grade 5 is regarded as extreme adventure. All of Luxury Adventures rafting operators are led by qualified rafting guides and comply with established safety codes. All gear including life vests, helmets and wetsuits are provided.
