Fly and Cruise Package

Gordon River Cruises together with Par-Avion bring you the ultimate wilderness day tour departing from Hobart.

Please book this tour via Par-Avion Wilderness Tours

Departing from Cambridge near Hobart, your scenic flight will take you over the central highlands of Tasmania towards the island’s wild west coast. From the air, you’ll marvel at the grand scale of Macquarie Harbour, with some great aerial photo opportunities, before descending to Strahan to join the award-winning Gordon River Cruise.

Your day tour will continue on Spirit of the Wild, on a journey through ‘Hell’s Gates’, the mouth of Macquarie Harbour before looking at local salmon and trout farms and then cruising up the famous waterway of the Gordon River, part of Tasmania’s UNESCO Wilderness World Heritage Area. Relax in comfort in Premier Upper Deck seating and experience picturesque reflections and a historical and interpretive trip through one of the world’s most pristine temperate rainforests. Your Gordon River Cruise vessel will stop at ‘Heritage Landing’, where you can take a walk through the rainforest, breathe the cleanest air in the world and view an ancient Huon Pine. Some of these trees are more than 2000 years old!
