Why drive when you can cruise the river? Experience the natural beauty of the Tweed Valley with Mount Warning Tours on a traditional 50-seater Huon pine river ferry, Spirit of Wollumbin.

The Tweed River runs through the heart of the valley, joining Murwillumbah’s art galleries, museum, studios, cafes and restaurants with the heritage trail at the historical village of Tumbulgum.

Tumbulgum means ‘meeting place of the waters’ and it’s the place where you’ll meet and board the boat for your river cruise to explore the scenic Tweed and Rous Rivers.

Immerse yourself in natural surrounds and soak up some local history, with the four-hour historical Tweed River Sightseeing Cruise, which includes a one hour lunch or dinner with a local seafood tasting platter for two at a riverside cafe after the tour.

Alternatively, board the smaller 12-seater pontoon boat for a relaxing two-hour River and Rainforest Tour, which includes complementary wine, soft drink and water on board plus lunch or dinner after the tour.

Mount Warning Tours also offer a wide variety of ‘adventures in nature’ including 4WD tours, kayak and stand up paddle-boarding hire and tours, sightseeing and walking tours and foodie tasting tours.
