R.E.A.L Fun Pty Ltd is based in Canberra and has been operating since 1996. We are owned and run by professional outdoor guides who have many years of experience leading outdoor activities, including whitewater rafting, kayaking and canoeing, abseiling, canyoning, mountain biking, caving, adventure games and bushwalking in Australia and overseas. All our guides hold the appropriate industry qualifications or certificates where applicable. R.E.A.L. Fun Pty Ltd also trades as Rapid Descents and Row ‘n’ Ride.
Check the trip calendar or call our office to find out what trips are available. If you have a group of 8 or more we can schedule a trip at any time for you. You will need to return a $50 deposit per person with your booking form, to confirm a space on any trip. The balance is required 1 week prior to trip departure. Payment can be made by personal cheque, money order, bank cheque or credit card.
Unsure what to give someone? Give them an adventure gift voucher. Vouchers can be made out for specific trips or can be made for a specific dollar amount. The recipient can then redeem it on any of our scheduled trips. Ask our office for a form or you can download one from the website.

We can organise a trip for your group from as little as 4hrs to as long as 7 days.
We take children 10 years and older but they should weigh at least 40kg. (14 years on the Murray gates). We do not set any upper age limit other than that which common sense imposes.
While there is an inherent element of risk in every adventure activity, trips with our professional guides should not be considered dangerous. Your guides all have training and experience well beyond that required by the relevant licensing agencies. Our safety record is outstanding and all our guides are qualified in rescue and first aid. We have contingency plans for each trip should evacuation or medical attention be necessary.
