    What to Expect
    Your eco-cruise starts at the Brunswick Heads Boat Harbour, where you’ll board your riverboat for a rainforest tour along the Brunswick River.

    For about 7.5 miles (12 km), glide along the river, looking for fish, stingrays, and other marine creatures in the clear water. Binoculars are provided to spot eagles, pelicans, and shorebirds, as well as a possible kingfisher darting across the river. Check out Fig Tree Hole, and learn about the history of the river and surrounding area from your guide.

    During your journey, refreshments are provided including coffee, a selection of teas, hot chocolate, cold drinks, cakes, and biscuits. Children of all ages are welcome. Your tour ends when you return to the dock.

    We had a family of 6 attend the 10am morning river cruise up the Brunswick River. We had two children aged 4 and 5 and were well looked after by the crew Simon and Rob. The kids had toys to place with once they were distracted by the sights. Simon lead the tour with lots of

    We had a wonderful time on the morning river cruise - the crew had great local knowledge to share, and were able to show us lots of flora and fauna. This was really the icing on the cake for our week in and around Byron. Couldn’t recommend more highly :)

    Thanks so much Sue for taking the time to write us a review. We are so pleased that you and your husband enjoyed the cruise and that our team were helpful. It's great to let other people who have mobility issues know that in a lot of cases they are able to access our boat and enjoy the beautiful scenery on a relaxing cruise. Also that we allow companion animals onboard. We hope to be able to be wheelchair accessible in the future once the harbour has been upgraded. Kind regards Lorraine
