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.
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.
