GOR­DON RIVER

Virgin Australia Voyeur - - SNAPSHOT -

Tas­ma­nia’s re­mote western wilder­ness is a UN­ESCO-pro­tected site that of­fers vis­i­tors a glimpse of an­cient forests and un­spoiled wa­ters. One of the best ways to see this breath­tak­ing area is by boat. The pur­pose-built Spirit of the Wild cata­ma­ran is equipped with both diesel en­gines and elec­tric mo­tors and “when the ves­sel en­ters the Gor­don River we switch the diesel propul­sion en­gines off, leav­ing only the elec­tric drive to pro­pel the ves­sel for­ward, which means pas­sen­gers en­joy a quiet cruis­ing ex­pe­ri­ence,” says RACT Group chief ex­ec­u­tive Har­vey Lenno. The cruise is the first to de­part from Stra­han, on beau­ti­ful Mac­quarie Har­bour, each morn­ing (which means a max­i­mum chance of see­ing the river at its stillest) and in­cludes a buf­fet lunch and two walk­ing tours. www.gor­don­river­cruises.com.au.
