Even though it was overcast and at times it rained it was a wonderful experience
The Macquarie Harbour and Gordon River Cruise was the high lite of our 20 day Fly/Drive Tas. trip. We were extremely fortunate to have a "picture perfect " day, the vessel comforts and viewing platforms excellent. The ongoing commentaries from the Skipper most informative, catering excellent. The Sarah Is. visit , a piece of lost history with entertaining tour guides. An absolute must for Tas. tourists.
Fantastic Could you please email me the name of the book and author of the Sarah island history Thanks
This is a beautiful part of Tasmania, my husband and I had a most wonderful cruise, we learnt a lot about, the trees and plants that grow along this area, also about the convict history on Sarah Island, the lunch on board was also top notch. Loved all of it.
Of all the attractions and things we did in Tasmania this was almost unanimously our number one receiving 39 points out of a possible 40. Great value and a memorable day all around. great contrasts - the wilds of the Southern Ocean with the tranquillity of the Gordon River; magnificent lunch; informative and entertaining tour of Sarah Island. Would recommend as a must do in a Tassie holiday
Loved everything about the Cruise and tour. Ship was clean and spacious the crew friendly and informative. The food was good and there was plenty of it. Loved the shore trips particularly the one to Sarah Island the guide really made the characters live. All in all we had a wonderful time.
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The captain (I think) was very informative. The scenery superb, the water reflections were amazing. Enjoyed the buffet, especially the salmon!! A highlight for me was Sarah Island and this was due to the guide who walked us through. She really made it come alive for us.
Loved every aspect of the trip, staff were very friendly, meal was fantastic
It was great! The seats I had were so comfortable, it was very spacious. The outdoor area on three levels of the cruise enabled breathtaking views. It was also very safe despite the dramatic wind conditions on the upper deck. Gordon River was beautiful and i mostly enjoyed the short tour into the rainforest. The stories of Sarah Island were personally not on my interest. I love how there was coffee available and the food was alright. There was a variety, but they were all cold foods.
Fantastic day on the Gordon River. Captain of cruise (Graeme) was very knowledgeable of area and has a great since of humour. Food and drink was terrific, and the ladies that assisted us though out the day were fantastic especially the American girl. Sarah Island was very interesting Cira was fantastic the way she acted
out the characters (convicts) on the history of the island. Very enjoyable day..
There are plenty of tours in Tassie and the trip up the Gordon is one of the best. Everything was great including the captains sense of humor.
Very relaxing, food great, tours on land well done and interesting and staff attentive !
This was just fantastic. Staff were great. Food was excellent . The commentary and the tours were well conducted, organised and informative. The boat itself was comfortable and well suited to the experience. Well done everyone!!!!
Fantastic day. The boat is quality, the food and wine are also quality. Glad we did the captains upgrade. Overall I can really recommend this trip.
We thoroughly enjoyed the cruise and the buffet lunch. Great weather and the heritage walk and Sarah Island were very interesting and informative. Great to recognize Kiah (Porter) after seeing her in the show the night before.
My family and I enjoyed the cruise very much despite the scorching summer heat! It was money well spent! The captain's deck was very comfortable with great service and food.
It was wonderful. Raining all morning but still enjoyed. Tour guide was amazing and everything was very interesting. Highly recommended. Thanks
Thoroughly enjoyed our day on the Lady Jayne. Staff were great, boat was comfortable and lunch was fantastic. The tour of Sarah Island was a highlight with much of the credit to the tour guide for her theatrical insights.
Absolutely heaven. Very interesting, great crew, meal superb and our stopover at Sarah Island was very entertaining. History comes alive with his narration. Captain of Lady Jane was very witty, kept us laughing.
Would certainly recommend it to anyone interested in seeing the real Tasmania.
We had a fantastic day. The weather was good. The trip was well organised. The guides had local knowledge and the food was good. We received a very good insigt into the flora, fauna and history of this magnificent part of the world. The trip was also very good value for money. I will take my overseas visitors on this trip again!!
