Exploring the Goulburn River
THE all new Goulburn Explorer was launched on Tuesday November 12, 2013 by Alex Chernov, The Governor of Victoria, and now offers visitors to Nagambie the opportunity to travel from Nagambie township via the Nagambie Lakes Leisure Park and Tahbilk Winery to Mitchelton Wines, just in time for lunch at the newly renovated Muse restaurant.
Mitchelton’s new River Boat Cruiser was built by Baldwin Boats of Mildura, specialising in building luxury house boats and custom commercial vessels.
The Goulburn Explorer was specifically designed for the Goulburn River with the consideration of width, depth and bridge heights.
Built 12 metres long and 6.6 metres wide, with a fully equipped licenced bar and both upper and lower decks, the Goulburn Explorer is designed to carry 49 passengers plus 4 staff members including skipper and crew.
Cruises are designed to deliver passengers to Mitchelton Wines in time for lunch and a tasting at their newly renovated Cellar Door.
The Goulburn Explorer operates every weekend and daily during school holiday periods from the first weekend in September through until the last weekend in April, along with private group charters outside of these hours.
With this very unique offering the Goulburn Explorer is set to become a tourism icon of Nagambie Lakes Wine Region.
