Terms & Conditions

Rafting is in the nature of an “extreme sport” and as such, has inherent dangers and risks, including risk of injury or death to the participant. While your tour guides are skilled and experienced, due to the nature of river rafting, FRANKLIN RIVER RAFTING is unable to be in any way responsible for any injury or death of the participant. Due to the remote location of the tour, medical aid or evacuation can be delayed for hours or even days. Please carefully read FRANKLIN RIVER RAFTING’s terms and conditions, which include important information regarding the risks and dangers of river rafting, outline your rights and obligations, and limit FRANKLIN RIVER RAFTING’s liability. FRANKLIN RIVER RAFTING’s terms and conditions apply to the extent permitted under law, including under the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth), and should any clause or part of any clause be in any way unenforceable, invalid or illegal, it is to be read down so as to be enforceable, valid and legal. If this is not possible, the clause (or where possible, the offending part) is to be severed from these terms and conditions without affecting the enforceability, validity or legality of the remaining clauses (or parts of those clauses) which will continue in full force and effect.
