Tour Description

Departing Cambridge, your scenic flight will take you over the central highlands of Tasmania towards the island’s wild west coast. From the air, you’ll marvel at the grand scale of Macquarie Harbour, with some great aerial photo opportunities, before descending to Strahan to join the award-winning Gordon River Cruise.

Your day tour will continue on a luxury catamaran on a journey through ‘Hell’s Gates’, the mouth of Macquarie Harbour before looking at local salmon and trout farms and then cruising up the famous waterway of the Gordon River, part of Tasmania’s UNESCO Wilderness World Heritage Area. Relax in comfort in atrium seating and experience picturesque reflections and a historical and interpretive trip through one of the world’s most pristine temperate rainforests. Your Gordon River Cruise vessel will stop at ‘Heritage Landing’, where you can take a walk through the rainforest, breathe the cleanest air in the world and see ancient Huon Pines. Some of these trees are more than 2000 years old!

Enjoy a Chef-prepared buffet lunch as you cruise to the second stop on your day tour, Sarah Island. Once a feared convict penal colony and now one of Tasmania’s most interesting historic sites. You’ll enjoy a guided interpretive tour of the island, hearing stories of the convict era.

Upon return, you’ll arrive back in time to peruse the local gift shop and take a stroll around the beautiful town of Strahan before returning by air to Cambridge.
