Uncover Tasmania's unique wilderness areas as you cruise along the World Heritage-listed Gordon River. Drift through Hells Gates into Macquarie Harbour, see some of Australia's oldest convict ruins at Sarah Island, stroll through ancient rainforest and savour a gourmet lunch of local produce.
Showcasing the natural splendour of the Tasmanian wilderness, a cruise along the World Heritage-listed Gordon River is the perfect way to spend your morning. Departing from Strahan Wharf, you will pass through Hells Gates, the narrow-channel entrance to Macquarie Harbour, before drifting passed high-tech aquaculture where famous ocean trout and salmon are farmed. Continue to Sarah Island, Tasmania's first and perhaps most notorious penal settlement, where you will disembark for an hour-long guided tour. From here, you will travel into the quiet expanse of the Gordon River. Absorb the tranquility as you glide along, before alighting for a stroll through the lichen-covered rainforest. Throughout the cruise, you will listen to engaging commentary about the area's history, ecology and geology, and savour a gourmet lunch filled with Tasmanian produce including smoked salmon.
Yearly scheduled maintenance takes place from July 15th to August 15th. Cruises are not available during this time.
Dress for the weather on the day and wear comfortable shoes.
This experience takes place in Strahan, TAS.
RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
