Brunswick is renowned for 'Simple Pleasures" and nothing beats the beauty and tranquillity of a cruise from The Brunswick upstream taking in all it has to offer culminating in an uninterrupted view of Mt Chincogan the crowning glory of the Brunswick valley. Wildlife abounds from the tiny sacred Kingfisher to the White - breasted sea eagle . The coffee and cake was delightfully served to us from our congenial hosts.

A fabulous way to spend a couple of hours. Super relaxing and enjoyable. Would recommend for anyone wanting to just kick back and relax. The guides were wonderful, helpful, and welcoming. The provided food was great and the glass of wine was greatly appreciated.

Would recommend this cruise highly. Simon made the trip very interesting and he was very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. Will definitely do this cruise again. Very enjoyable.
