" The Tully River is Australia's most iconic and picturesque rafting river. It's a long race so try and control your adrenaline on this leg. "

Jarad Kohlar - COURSE DIRECTOR

STAGE 1 - RAFTING

Red Bull Defiance teams begin their two day adventure with a gripping whitewater raft down through the Tully Gorge. The Tully River is regarded as Australia’s premier rafting location, with grade 3-4 level rapids plunging through World Heritage Rainforest. Recently announced as home to the 2019 IRF World Rafting Championships, teams will experience big waves, drops and action packed rapids, as they make their way down the Tully River from Cardstone Village to the Tully River Bridge. Expect to see a mixture of fear and exhilaration on competitor faces as they begin their quest to Defy the Odds.
