1. Strahan: World Heritage Cruise on Gordon River with Lunch

Your cruise includes lunch, a 1-hour guided tour on Sarah Island, a 30-minute walk at Heritage Landing on the Gordon River and a tour of Huon Pine Sawmill on return to Strahan. When booking, you can choose standard, premium or gold seating. Climb aboard a purpose-built catamaran that departs from Strahan Wharf and heads towards Hells Gates, the narrow-channel entrance to Macquarie Harbor. Pass ocean trout and Atlantic salmon farms en-route to Sarah Island. Take a 1-hour guided tour of the island to learn about the harsh conditions of Tasmania's first penal settlement. From Sarah Island, travel into the majestic world heritage listed Gordon River. Rediscover serenity while gliding deep into the ancient rainforest. Disembark at Heritage Landing for a stroll through the hushed, lichen-covered rainforest. Marvel at one of the forest's oldest inhabitants, a 2000-year-old Huon Pine. Your cruise adventure is accompanied by engaging on-board commentary on the area's human history, ecology and geology. The commentary is enriched with anecdotes from the Grining family’s own experiences from more than a century of cruising on the famous river. The included sumptuous lunch is freshly prepared daily and consists of local smoked salmon, cold meats, salads, Tasmanian cheeses, bread roll, and a sweet. There is also a licensed bar on-board where you can purchase drinks and snacks.

Great experience overall - good blend of history and information. I was asked about dietary requirements but disappointed with meal - all you did was just remove stuff from my plate I would have expected extra veg to make up for loss of carbs

What an amazing adventure. Highly recommend. Commentary was superb. Guides were knowledgeable. Kat was a stand out, she went above and beyond to make sure we were looked after. Lunch was delicious and fresh

Fabulous cruise. Peaceful and serene. Interesting places we stopped. Great six hours to wind.

A thoroughly informative cruise on a luxurious Catamaran. All staff were excellent.

Excellent boat ride across the bay and up the river.
