1.5Hr Relaxing Afternoon Huon Valley Cruise

4.5 based on all time ratings

Embraced by the glass-like Huon River and framed by the stunning Wellington ranges, Huon Valley is nothing short of a feast to one’s eyes. Come aboard ‘La Drone’, a classic Wooden Motor Cruiser with comfortable seating, to soak in the unparalleled beauty of Huon Valley on a short scenic cruise. 

The vessel has a comfortable enclosed cabin with cushioned seats, and boasts a lovely back deck for panoramic views of the valley.

Before you depart from the private dock at Heriots Point Vineyard, the crew will give you a short brief. Soon, you are making your way up the river, towards the charming township of Franklin. 

As you glide along the lovely wooden boats and the enchanting riverside buildings, learn a little bit of local history from the captain’s commentary. 

If you want to enjoy a drink amidst nature, get a cider or beer available to buy on board. There are some non-alcoholic options as well. You can also purchase a tasting platter of delicious treats to savour the flavours of Tasmania.

Hurry up!  Embrace this golden opportunity to experience Huon Valley like never before. Book your tickets now!
