DescriptionThe River & Rainforest Cruise visits the Riparian Rainforest, mangrove forests and biodiverse Stotts Island on this 3.5 hour experience. You will be served a morning tea on board as you cruise leisurely from the marina, being entertained and educated with the Captain's commentary on local wildlife and history. As we reach Stotts Island you can spot the Brahminy Kite and other birds of prey that call the region home. It is, after all, the third most biodiverse region in Australia and home to over 400 species of trees, birds and plant life! As the vessel departs for home you will be served your grazing board lunch platter with locally smoked and cured meats, cheeses, quiches, salad, prawns, fruits and bread. The onboard licensed bar is open for purchases too, so why not try one of our locally brewed and distilled beers or spirits. We support local as much as possible, and so serve produce from within an 80km radius as much as possible! The picturesque views of the Border Ranges and Wollumbin (Mt Warning) set a truly special backdrop for this delightful day out on the Tweed River. The fresh air, blue waters and panoramic views will have you relaxing into nature on this not-to-be-missed day out.
