The Nymboida River is a 'natural' flow river which means the weather dictates our rafting trips.

Before booking please make sure you read and understand the below.

To join this tour you must be 14+ years old and over 40kgs.

Pending Supplier

For a trip to go ahead there needs to be a minimum of 10 people for the big water. Until the booking reaches 10 it will show 'Pending Supplier'.

If your group size is less than 10 you can either join a group, pay the difference, or enquire about starting a new booking with your preferred date.

Once there are 10+ people we will confirm the trip.  You will receive a ‘pre-arrival’ email (waiver) - please check your spam folder if it's not in your inbox -  email will be from ''.   Each person must fill out this form before the trip commencement date.  Any persons who have not completed our waiver form will not be allowed to go on the trip.

On Confirmation - your trip will still be pending

After receiving your 'confirmation' your trip will show as confirmed, however your trip may still not go ahead due to the following:

  1. River Heights  - too high or too low.  We try to give as much information as soon as we know ourselves and sometimes won't know until the morning of your trip.
  2. There is a chance we will drive to the river and cancel the trip on arrival due to no electronic river gauge in the area. This is very rare!
  3. Natural Parks Closure - this is out of our control.  They usually give us 24 hours notice however also not limited to.
  4. Raft Guides - availability of guides.  Raft Guides are seasonal workers and also hold down other full time employment.
  5. Covid Outbreak / Closures / Hotspots - If the government puts out a heath order that effects you from traveling or returning to your home address we can put your order on hold for a later date (no terms on when you can re-use) This will not be considered for a 'posable closure'.
1. Exodus Adventures hold the right to cancel your trip due to the above conditions.  If we cancelled your trip you will have the opportunity to change dates or be given a full refund.  Exodus Adventures will not be responsible for any compensation on your accommodation and or travel due to cancelling.

2. If you cancel anytime before 14 days, a 10% admin fee will not be refunded*

Towel, sunscreen, sun safe swimwear (long swim shorts or 3/4 or long exercise pants), hat or cap to wear under your helmet, closed in shoes (old joggers or sneakers - NO slip on shoes), and spare clothes to change into after your tour.


*These partial refunds are due to 'your cancelation' possibly affecting other clients. Example: a group of 10 people have booked a trip and two people cancel which in turn makes the trip not cost effective / not viable to run and therefore will follow on to cause the cancelation to the other 8 clients. Please understand that 8 companies used to run these trips on the Nymboida River and due to the nature of the business we are now the only company to continue the 'Nymboida Legacy'.
