3.5Hr Tweed River & Rainforest Lunch Cruise

4.5 based on all time ratings

Lying at the southern doorstep of Gold Coast is an unspoilt, pristine, abundant natural region called Tweed Valley. Discover its nooks and crannies on one of the most recommended incredible Tweed Eco cruises from Gold Coast!


The ultimate feel-one-with-nature experience of the region– take in the ever-changing beauty of the scenic islands, sub-tropical rainforests, pretty sugarcane fields, tangled mangroves and a whole lot more!  


Immerse yourself in the truly enchanting experience of cruising down the majestic Tweed River on the ‘Golden Swan’, as the classic river vessel gracefully winds its way past the picturesque Ukerebagh Island. Drink a cup of local coffee or tea with some fresh cake to feel more rejuvenated. Do not forget to look out for the locals- Kingy and Herbie, the resident dolphins!    


When you meander into the floating pockets of prehistoric rainforests past Scotts Island, step onto the open decks to feed the pelicans that call the area home. On this Tweed River cruise, you’ll also get a chance to spot white-breasted sea eagles, whistling, brahminy kites and terns circling above, waiting for the perfect moment to grab their feed with their talons.  


Pay attention to the skipper’s active, entertaining and fun commentary to learn about the region and its history, and about the flora and fauna of Tweed Valley. Make sure you are always ready to strike a pose because the plenty of photo opportunities throughout this journey are absolutely stunning! 


As you re-enter the main river, overlooked by Wolllubin and the Border Ranges, you get to relax, dine, and enjoy a grazing platter of goodies (all items prepared from fresh locally-sourced produce) served right to your tables. Get your favourite drink from the onboard bar to go with your lunch. 


This is one of the best Tweed River cruises to be amidst lush nature and enjoy a quick getaway from the loud noises of city life! Book now!
