Tasmania - World Heritage Gordon River Paddle
puretasmania.com.au

World Heritage Experience. The Gordon River Paddle is a full-day signature experience on Tasmania’s West Coast.  It combines a cruise on the most environmentally friendly catamaran ever built in Australia, Lady Jane Franklin II, with a sea kayak trip to experience the true character of a wilderness river. Voyage across Macquarie Harbour, passing through Hells Gates, the narrow entrance to the harbour, then gliding into the Gordon River, alongside ancient rainforest mirrored in the water. The safe, stable and comfortable double sea kayaks are lowered into the Gordon River at Heritage Landing, the furthest point that cruise boats can reach. The paddle upstream is a quiet and intimate experience – pristine forest air to breathe, ripples fanning away from the bow, the swirl of a platypus ahead. Only bush birds and the splash of the paddle breaks the silence of the wilderness.  A picnic lunch of fresh Tasmanian produce is served on a riverbank . Then it’s a lazy drift and paddle back downstream, before arriving at Heritage Landing to meet the  Lady Jane Franklin II.  During the return voyage,  stop at Sarah Island, where an interpretive guide leads a fascinating discovery walk around the ruins of the convict colony.
