Raging Thunder Adventures

Raging Thunder Adventures pioneered rafting in Queensland, Australia in 1984. Their first commercial trip on the Tully River consisted of three nervous passengers. Since then they have expanded their product range to include a series of adventure tours suitable for all levels of excitement including white water rafting, heli-rafting, sea kayaking, hot air ballooning, trekking, sky diving, four wheel drive tours, which serves to highlight that adventure tourism is no longer just a special interest activity, and indeed forms the basis of many tour itineraries. They also have a range of extended packages suitable for the independent traveller.
