Arthur River Cruises

Shared by |tags, , ,

Encounter the beautiful Tasmanian location that's thought to contain some of the freshest air on earth, the Arthur River!

Situated on Tasmania's wild west coast, the Arthur River weaves through towering eucalypt forests out to the sea, with visitors able to enjoy this special area with a spot of fishing, canoeing or an enjoyable cruise.

The river was recently named in Australian Traveller magazine's 100 Incredible Travel Secrets, coming in at number 64, with the north-west location getting a special mention for its "pristine and untouched landscapes".

If you're making a visit to the island sometime this year, make sure to jump on board with Arthur River Cruises for a wonderful experience of the area like no other.

Take to the river on the 52-seat George Robinson, with kingfishers, platypus and a host of other Tasmanian wildlife spotted on the cruise.

Cruises depart daily from the Arthur River Township at 10:00, with guests also able to explore on foot, discovering the wonders of the ancient Tarkine rainforest.

Travel up to the junction of the Arthur and Frankland Rivers while enjoying morning tea, before making a two-hour stop at Turk's Landing.

Enjoy an easy guided walk through the Tarkine rainforests with your tour guide, before returning for a lip-smacking barbecue lunch complete with bread rolls, fresh salads and wine.

After you've filled your belly, you'll climb aboard the George Robinson again to make your way home after five hours of sights and discoveries.

Guests are required to bring sensible footwear for the long guided walk (such as boots or shoes with strong grip soles), while flat-heeled shoes are suitable for shorter walks. A warm jacket is also highly recommended, and remember to dress for the conditions!

Take note that Arthur River Cruises are closed from June to August, so book your cruise for May or the sunnier spring months.

The rates for adults and seniors are $90-95 per person, children (aged five to 15) are $35 per person and children under five are free.
