We had a wonderful family day out with our 2 kids (boy & girl aged 13 & 14). We were staying with family as we are from Alice Springs. The bus trip was comfortable with Lloyd our MC providing great info and safety instructions. Once out on the river – there were 9 rafts in our group (the bus was full!), we had a great day despite it being a drizzly and cool day.
I highly recommend hiring the wetsuits for $10 if you are like me and do not cope with being wet and cold but they do provide thermal long-sleeved rash-tops for free. Our groups guide, Julian, was fantastic and we had great fun active day. The hot BBQ lunch was most welcome.
The thing that really made our trip was once we were back on the bus at the bottom of the mountain I realised I had left my handbag at the top change rooms (50min drive back up the hill). The team were brilliant, Mick the bus driver was so wonderful and unloaded the undercarriage to check it hadn’t been just left down there. Our huge thanks go to Lloyd who’s assistance was wonderful and even let us use his own private mobile phone. Our knight in shining armour was Jack who volunteered to go back up the hill and check while we continued onto Cairns on the bus (2hours drive away).
Jack located my bag (with car and house keys, wallets, wedding ring, phones etc etc) and then drove into Cairns to hand deliver to us!!!!
This turned a great day that could have turned out be a disaster memorable for all the right reasons.
A HUGE THANK YOU to the whole RnR White Water Rafting crew – great day, great team and fantastic fun!
