Cairns Tubing Tours

Cairns tubing tours are half day adventures in paradise. They provide a unique opportunity to immerse yourself in some amazing natural surroundings, floating down natural rainforest rivers with some small rapids and big views.

So, what is a Cairns tubing tour? As its name suggests, it’s a tour conducted on tubes. Professional, twin-chamber tubes to be exact, which provide a comfortable ride suitable for people aged between 5 and 70 years old.

Behana Gorge or Mulgrave River

No previous experience is required for these Cairns tubing tours, which are fully supervised for your peace of mind. Where do they operate? Either at Behana Gorge or the Mulgrave River, both of which are about 30 minutes south of Cairns. We pick the best one on the day.

A Cairns tubing tour provides you with about two hours of river tubing and is perfect for solo travellers, families and/or groups of friends travelling together. They’re an idyllic way to see some really remote sections, of some of our favorite river systems.

Come One, Come All
