When you come to Ballina, chances are you are coming to enjoy the natural beauty which really can’t be beaten in this part of NSW. While there are plenty of things to see and do around here, with beautiful outdoor parks and some amazing options for food, you absolutely need to get out onto the water while you are here. Our cruises take you out to the river, either at a leisurely pace or for a more exciting adventure, showing you the sights, sounds, and wildlife that you cannot see from the shore. We wish to make your trip worth the travel, showing you just what makes this area so unique.
Our tours go through the mangrove forests, down the creeks, showing you flora and fauna unique to this region along the way. Many rare birds and sea creatures such as dolphins swim up and down the river, and for real nature lovers, it can be quite a thrill to see these animals in real life and up close. Beautiful sunset views are a treat from the boat, and for photography lovers, this makes for the prime opportunity to get some rare, beautiful shots to bring back with you.
Our trips cater to groups large and small and are perfect for children and adults. Whether you and a loved one are looking for an intimate evening out on the river, or you want to teach your kids more about Australian wildlife, our charter tours can cater to your group’s specific needs. With our river cruise in Ballina, your day trips to this area will be made all the more memorable.
