de Groots Best Venues of Australia Venue Full Description

The tranquil Tamar River is nestled in the historic Tamar Valley in Northern Australia.  All cruises depart from the Home Point Cruise Terminal, which is just 10-15 minutes walk from the Launceston CBD or 5 minutes in a taxi.


More than 70 km long, the Tamar River is Australia’s longest navigable estuary and is noted for its inspiring natural beauty and prolific wildlife.  A cruise on the Tamar River is the perfect way to connect with life on the Tamar, and holding your function with Tamar River Cruises is a great way to create lasting memories for guests. The vessels are kept in a truly immaculate state, and the staff are proud of the professional friendly service they provide.

Lady Launceston
The Lady Launceston is ideal for a small group function with 25 maximum capacities for catering or drinks. The new Lady Launceston has been purpose built to cruise the Cataract Gorge and Launceston’s riverfront precinct showcasing its many highlights. The design is reminiscent of the 1890’s with sweeping traditional lines, combined with modern technology to ensure all passengers cruise in maximum comfort. The Lady Launceston has been custom designed with a unique silent electric drive, to allowing serene gliding into the Cataract Gorge and overhead 360 degrees viewing.

Tamar Odyssey
The Tamar Odyssey is perfect for group functions up to 60 guests for catering or drinks. Being a catamaran, The Tamar Odyssey provides a comfortable ride and is able to carry maximum guest numbers in comfort with no sense of crowding. The layout is open-plan and guests are able to move between the outer, upper and lower decks with ease. Guests are welcome to sit with the Skipper in the spacious wheelhouse. The Tamar Odyssey has recently undergone a refurbishment, giving the vessel a crisp new look.


Celebrating a wedding day on the tranquil Tamar River with Tamar River Cruises is a great way to create lasting memories. Wedding cruise packages are personalised to meet individual schedule and budget requirements.  Catering packages are available for both cocktail party style and sit-down buffet options.  Many couples have both the ceremony and the reception on board, as the Cataract Gorge is the perfect backdrop for saying “I do”.
