5 star ratinggippsland lakes tour I have just returned from a wonderful Gippsland Lakes cruise, brilliantly organised, friendly and perfect. Jock was a wealth of knowledge which added extra zest to the cruise. The time spent on the water, our exploring expeditions and the pace of the trip was really well thought out and, for me, perfect. We had an amazing group of people from all over Australia. I was the only person to go on my own but was welcomed and included by all. The accommodation at Paynesville was exceptionable and the other two place were certainly very adequate - as for the food -----fantastic.

I would highly recommend this tour to anyone and am now saving my pennys for the Albury, Echuca trip

thanks Jock, Brian and Chris

5 star ratingThe cruise showed the proffesionalism of the company and the crew. We took the 6 hour cruise up the Coorong, which passed the Mouth of the Murray river. The Commentary was excellent, the scenery was great as were the walks in the Coorong. The online booking system allowed each passenger to state dietary requirements or allergies and when the meals were served, the 'special food' people had their name on the individual containers. Well done!

It was a great cruise and one that we have no hesitation to recommend.

5 star ratingA 6 hour cruise of discovery from Goolwa Wharf to the reaches of the Coorong National Park We took our cruise of the Coorong aboard the Spirit of the Coorong and found the whole experience exhilarating, informative and very good value. Lunch and an entree of freshly cooked cockles/pipi in a creamy white sauce along with afternoon tea were all included. The boat is modern and comfortable and even though the boat was almost full everybody was served with expertise and a smile. The crew, Bain and Dave, were experienced, informative and friendly. The history of the creation of the barrage system that keeps the sea from encroaching on the Murray River and the Lakes was a feature as was the Murray mouth and the many bird species that either live or migrate too and from the area.

The boat departs the Goolwa Wharf and travels through the lock in the Goolwa Barrage up to the river mouth and then onto the Coorong National Park. The first stop allows the passengers to take a guided walk through the dunes to the sea. Explanations of the history of the area from the indigenous past to the early settlers to the modern day and the flora and fauna of the area were a highlight. Lunch in transit to the second spot was excellent. The second walk is about half way into the dunes and focuses on the indigenous way of life.

You know when you have had a good day out when six hours flashes by all to soon.
