Journey deep into the wilderness
aboard spirit of the wild
Join the award-winning Gordon River Cruises for a guided wilderness tour across Macquarie Harbour and along the Gordon River. Experience our pristine Tasmanian wilderness and the ancient west coast from a unique perspective.
Spirit of the Wild is the first daily cruise boat to enter the Gordon River each morning, giving guests the best chance of witnessing the famous reflections on the tannin-stained waters. During your wilderness cruise, wander amongst the largest tract of temperate rainforest surviving on earth, home to trees thousands of years old.
After a chef-prepared lunch showcasing Tasmanian produce, explore the ruins of Sarah Island, once a dreaded penal colony and the largest boat building settlement in the British colonies. Your dedicated guides will recount astonishing stories of the convicts, soldiers, settlers and shipwrights who lived and worked there.
