  • KING RIVER RAFTING COVID19 PLAN The Tasmanian State Government requires every business in Tasmania to have a COVID 19 Plan to demonstrate COVID 19 control measures. These measures need to be relevant to the situation and accurately reflect the COVID 19 risk. Rafting in the open air with small individual groups can be considered a low risk activity. Nevertheless King River Rafting is cognizant that a COVID risk does exist and is implementing the following steps. START UP - TAHUNE King River Rafting will start commercial trips once the Tasmanian Government announce Stage 3 Restrictions. AIS Level C Return to Sport restrictions are expected to apply at the same time. Tasmanian Government recommendations will be followed. Hand hygiene and social distancing will apply where required. Initially trips will be weekends only on the Picton River. Public groups will be limited to 2 groups of six people. Larger single groups can be accommodated. START UP - QUEENSTOWN Rafting on the King River is expected to recommence in October 2020. Public Groups will be limited to two groups of eight people.

King River Rafting is Tasmania’s Award winning one day rafting specialist.  From our Tahune base in the Huon Valley we offer our three Twin River Adventures.  Winter or summer here we have an adventure for the whole family.

At Queenstown we offer our King River Gorge Experiences.  A step up excitement from Tahune  here we raft a wild west coast gorge and return on a heritage steam train or maybe continue on to the mouth of the river at Macquarie Harbour.   Possibly exploring the tranquil middle King Gorge is more to your liking on our King River Gorge Explorer
