Gordon River Cruises

Cruise into the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area and discover Tasmania’s most unique natural garden. Witness the magnificent reflections of the Gordon River when you stand on the bow of the first vessel to cruise its tranquil waters each day, the Lady Jane Franklin II. See the wonder of a 2000 year old Huon Pine and explore the convict history of Sarah Island.

Your Gordon River Cruise offers three seating types, including the Captain’s Premier Upper Deck, ensuring there is an experience to suit every visitor’s need. Step ashore at Heritage Landing to walk through ancient rainforest and enjoy a superb buffet lunch on board your vessel.  Explore on foot a second time, when you step ashore at Sarah Island to reveal tales of the area’s convict past. The Gordon River Cruise is one of Australia’s most outstanding wilderness experiences and is not to be missed when touring Tasmania.

Venture to Bonnet Island in the evening on a different tour, the Bonnet Island Experience. With a small group, cruise to Bonnet Island and watch the sunset while enjoying drinks and nibbles before stepping on to the island to watch the penguins return home after their day at sea. This is a truly memorable experience on Tasmania’s West Coast.
