Our Environment

Protecting the environment around us is very important to the team at Gordon River Cruises.


We’re fortunate to operate our cruises in one of the most amazing wilderness areas on the planet. Without it, we would not be able to provide our guests with spectacular experiences in the wild and connect them with the natural values of this place. 

We proudly hold EcoStar environmental accreditation, highlighting our commitment to not only minimal impact operation but advocacy on behalf of Tasmania’s wild places. Of the utmost importance to us, is the idea that our guests cruise with us and take away with them, a truer understanding of the values of the UNESCO Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area.

Gordon River Cruises is a 'Natural Partner' of Wildcare, a non-profit organisation that supports a number of groups statewide, making positive contributions to preserving and maintaining our native flora and fauna. More specifically, we're the founding funding partner for the Wildcare gift fund dedicated to helping Tasmania's penguins. You can make a contribution by clicking here.

We also raise funds for the effort to save the critically endangered Orange Bellied Parrot, a native bird species that migrates between western Tasmania and Victoria and is under significant threat.
