Gordon River (Strahan) Pieman River Cruises

Once a mining town, Tasmania’s Corinna is now a wilderness retreat. If you are looking for a destination where you can really immerse yourself in nature, far from phone calls and wifi signals, you are at the right place. It is in this remote corner of the world where you will find the primitive Pieman River. The accommodation here is along the lines of homestays, chic hotels and boutique resorts. So, if you’re planning to cruise, find a Pieman River accommodation that perfectly suits your style while offering easy access to the Corinna departure point.

The Pieman River is engulfed by the Tarkine rainforest, the largest temperate rainforest in Australia. Brace yourself, for you will never experience a cruise like a Pieman River cruise. Framed by Huon Pines that only grows in this part of the world, the clear water of the river mirrors the sky and the lush wilderness. Needless to say, the river is a sight to behold at any time of the day.

There are only a few mammals and birds that inhabit the Tarkine, but elusive Platypuses can be spotted in the Pieman River. If luck favours you, you might come across one. Also, look out for  Tasmanian wedge tailed eagle’s nest! The Pieman River Cruise leaves from Corinna. As you sail down the river, listen to fantastic tales about the river, its fascinating history from your knowledgeable Skipper. 

Some cruises allow you to disembark at Pieman Heads. Upon nearing the river mouth, you will notice that the bank is adorned by tree trunks that have been cast ashore by the untamed river. Take a walk around and meet the shack community that occupies the Pieman Heads.

You may also cruise to the beautiful Lover’s Fallswhich is only accessible by small boats/kayaks. The moss covered, steep staircase leading up to the waterfalls is ethereal. Another sight to look out for is the wreck of the S.S. Croydon wreck(a sunken ship). 

A Pieman River cruise will definitely give you the best experience of feeling one with the incredible nature. Embrace the wonders and the unparalleled serenity that awaits you. So, choose the experience that interests you the most and come aboard. Book a Pieman River Cruise today!
