TWIN RIVERS WINTER ADVENTURE
- Duration: 5 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Geeveston, Tasmania
- Product code: PICTON
Experience the Twin Rivers Winter Adventure when the rivers are at their wild best. The higher winter flows make for a very different trip to summer yet still suitable for all ages. We are able to start further up the river making a 9 km river journey through Tasmania's tall forests. We have all the gear to keep you warm and safe whilst enjoying the classic Picton River. All gear and entry to the Tahune Adventure site is included.
We will meet you at the Tahune Adventure Site where we will get dressed into rafting gear and travel up the Picton Valley to the start of the trip.
From the 'Top Bridge' we raft down the Picton River, including the section used on the Twin Rivers Adventure back to the Tahune Adventure Site. Features on the way include 'The Gorge', Huon Pine Trees and interpretation of the huge surrounding Eucalyptus Regnans forests. We will pause for brief river snacks along the way and later enjoy lunch (not included) at the Tahune Cafe. The Picton River Classic is about 4 1/2 hours return to Tahune.
Depending on the water flow the Picton River can deliver rapids to grade three. The Picton River is fun at any level. In normal moderate flows it has grade one & two rapids and at levels over 1 metre this increases to grade three. Contact us with any questions you may have about water levels or river gradings.
This is a classic Hobart river trip that has been a favourite for generations and is fun at most levels and in all weathers.
