What to expect

Take the 'sea-nic' route and join us on our charming 3.5-hour river and Rainforest cruise. This tour navigates the waterways from Tweed Heads to the beautiful rainforest of Stotts Island aboard the classic timber vintage river ferry - 'The Golden Swan'. This unforgettable journey will immerse you in nature and ensure you leave behind the stresses of life and the daily grind.

With the skyline highlighted by an ancient volcano, Mount Warning, taste the freshest Tweed produce as you take in the ever-changing views. The captain provides a commentary where guests learn about the region's history and world-class ecosystem that forms part of UNESCO World Heritage Gondwana Rainforest. Keep an eye out for dolphins as you cruise through small villages, sugar cane fields, and sub-tropical rainforest. The abundant birdlife of the region is showcased at Stott's Island as we feed the soaring birds of prey including eagles, kytes, and many others.

Enjoy a sumptuous moring tea and for lunch a Tweed River Picnic Box, with some of the finest produce from the Northern Rivers with all produce sourced from local trawlers, fishermen, and neighbouring farms. Enjoy a glass of beer or wine, or the famous Ink gin produced right here on the Tweed River.

A classic cruise that has been operating on the Tweed for over 20 years, a wonderful experience to unwind, be immersed in nature and an opportunity to taste an array of produce from our region in one place - on our top deck in the rainforest, and experience to savour.
