Cruise into the magical Cataract Gorge and through Launceston's riverfront precinct. Head north past Tamar Island, historical buildings, churches, hotels and significant homesteads. Sample the rich diversity of life as we cruise past quaint riverfront communities, vineyards and farms to the notable Batman Bridge. The Tamar Valley is steeped with romance and studded with bushrangers, explorers and tales of gold diggers. Australia's longest navigable estuarine river has many natural coves and protected inlets which provide sanctuary for thousands of native water birds that can only be seen on the river. This cruise includes morning tea, a light lunch and a cheese and fruit platter as well as local beer and wine tastings. Cruises depart from the Home Point Cruise Terminal every Saturday, Monday and Wednesday at 10am between September and May and returns at 2pm.
