We will show you a side of Tasmania like no other: our award-winning Tasmanian-owned Gordon River Cruises give you a unique perspective on our natural wilderness and the amazing West Coast.

The Gordon River is one of our natural wonders and an amazing location for a wilderness cruise. From deep within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area it winds its way through the rainforest to arrive at the wide expanse of Macquarie Harbour, then through the narrow entrance of Hells Gates into the Southern Ocean.

Your wilderness cruise departs from Strahan, a picturesque historic harbour-side village on the edge of Macquarie Harbour and the Franklin-Gordon Wild Rivers National Park.

Keep your camera at the ready... The Lady Jane Franklin II is the first boat on the Gordon River each day and the reflections on the water have to be seen to be believed.   

The Gordon River Cruise is a favourite amongst all guests, including international visitors.  We're proud to provide Gordon River Cruises tour interpretation translated as audio tours into German, French, Cantonese and Mandarin.

As one of the best things to do in Strahan, the half-day Gordon River Cruise is a spectacular way to experience this part of Tasmania. But don’t stop there: we also have the Bonnet Island Experience, the Convict Explorer, Discover the Bays, the Afternoon Highlights Cruise and fishing and sightseeing charter cruises in Macquarie Harbour.
