What to see and do on Port AdVenture Cruises in Port Macquarie

We simply love Port Macquarie. It's a beautiful place with lovely beaches, and so many attractions such as the Koala Hospital, Billabong Zoo.

The Hastings River is one of the cleanest in Australia. When you get on one of our cruises, we travel up the river through the canals and we give a bit of commentary as we cruise along. You learn a bit of history about the area as well, and we go up as far as the Hibbard Ferry. It's a beautiful, relaxing cruise into the canals where you see pretty neighbourhoods.

Our clients like to get up on the top deck and enjoy a bit of sun. You also get to spot some dolphins, which always gets people delighted! There are about three or four pods of dolphins that have actually called the Hastings River home. They are free spirits and not something we can guarantee you'll always see, but nine times out of ten, we do see them. When they show up, they swim along with our boat and they are really friendly creatures to have on a tour!

Sometimes we also see white-belly seagulls and even turtles too! There is a lot of wildlife around to spot, so get your binoculars ready!

We often ask clients where they are from and we've been having people from all different locations. Many are coming from out west, from Bathurst, Tamworth, Melbourne. And because now Bonza airlines are flying direct, many are coming from Victoria. With the highway, we are also well connected to Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sydney. Port Macquarie is wonderfully well located in the middle of all of this communication and many people are attracted here because the weather is great and there are so many things to do. It's incredibly accessible now. So there are no excuses not to come visit!
