W had a very enjoyable morning cruising on the Nambucca river with Rob and Robyn. Robs commentary was very informative of the area and the history we also enjoyed his choice of music. Robyn served a delicious fresh Devonshire tea.

We did the 2 hour "devonshire tea" cruise up the river to Gumma. Very interesting and informative commentary and lovely scones. They don't skimp on the jam and cream! Highly recommended and very nice way to see the river.

A beautiful cruise up the scenic Nambucca River to Macksville, great commentary by Captain Rob and the best homemade scones or BBQ prepared by Robyn. Great way to see the new Phillip Hughes Bridge spanning our beautiful waterway.
