World Heritage Cruises. World Famous Gordon River Strahan

Like five family generations before them the Grining family as operators of World Heritage Cruises grew up on the Gordon River and today continue a family owned business built on a century of tradition. Their unique insights into the river’s special character and its place in Tasmanian’s World Heritage Wilderness, bring this enthralling journey to life.

You’ll ride the tide through Hells Gates and see Tasmanian aquaculture Macquarie Harbour style; you’ll explore Sarah Island*, one of the oldest convict settlements in Australia, and relive the absorbing tale of how the inmates turned a hell on earth into one of the largest ship building yards in Australia.

You’ll stroll among trees thousands of years old at Heritage Landing. Above all else, you’ll rediscover serenity in the deep, dark waters, of the Gordon River and the timeless World Heritage Wilderness through which it flows.
