Gordon River Cruises

History, wilderness, fine food, unforgettable reflections, wonderful views - your cruise aboard the Lady Jane Franklin is an experience you'll always remember. With an 8:30 departure, the Lady Jane Franklin takes you on a voyage of discovery across Macquarie Harbour and into the wilderness. With allocated seating there's no need to queue. Move freely about the Lady Jane and take in some of the cleanest air in the world from the open decks, returning to your seat at any time.

On the main deck you can select from two seating styles - standard atrium and premium window seats. All are forward facing spacious and comfortable. The first class option is the Captain's Premier Upper Deck. A luxury wilderness experience - including fine food, wine, beverages, exclusive deck space and a dedicated nature guide.

Lady Jane Franklin's floor to ceiling windows give you superb views of rainforest, river, mountains and harbour.
Macquarie Harbour opens to the Southern Ocean at Hell's Gate - you'll pass through the narrow passage that has claimed many ships and seafarers in the past. Marvel at the Training Wall, a masterpiece of 19th century engineering that has made the passage safe today.

You will visit fish farms where prized Atlantic Salmon and Ocean Trout are grown. At Sarah Island, you'll walk among the ruins and hear your guide bring the past alive with astonishing stories of the days when convicts built amazing ships from Huon pine.
The wide mouth of the Gordon River opens to quiet river reaches, where ancient Huon pines and forests are perfectly reflected in the dark, mirror-calm waters. Upstream, walk through the rainforest at Heritage Landing. Whilst gently cruising back downstream, enjoy a delicious buffet and sample local smoked salmon along with other delicacies.
