This is a must do if you are passing through Murchison. It was a great experience and Mark provided information about the river.
We are early 60s so don't let age put you off, if you don't hop off the boat with a smile on your face you are not alive!

Awesome ride on the Buller River. We had a marvellous time on the boat which is not all about speed, spins and shearing next to the rocks. Mack also explained about what effect the earthquakes have had on the river.
