First off the booking was easy and the price including tea/coffee and biscuits on the way out with a BBQ coming back, was such that I wondered what the quality was going to be like. I was quite taken back by the food and service that Murray and Lindall gave over the 4+ hrs, very good value for money. Murray... More

We (family including two boys aged 13 and 11) embarked on the river and rainforest cruise for my husband's birthday. The booking and payment process was simple and the marina at Tweed easy to find. We're relatively local so we chose to drive, although visitors had the option of pick up from Gold Coast hotels for our 9am boarding. Departure... More

We had 25 on board so there was plenty of room, food service was quick, a full book of passengers might be different. Boarding was... More

Just so relaxing to sit and watch the scenery go past, you see the countryside from a different angle on the water, we had morning tea and a lovely BBC lunch. Stopped off at tumbulgan village to look around then headed home again.

The trip to Tumbulgum was relaxing. The skipper tried his best to inform us of local history. That part was OK except for the tables of noisy guests that were only intent on talking loudly amongst themselves. On the way back everyone was more intent on feeding their faces, so the skipper did not talk again. Most people said the... More

We were welcomed aboard the Golden Swan - a modest boat that carries up to 70 passengers- by a small hard working crew, who looked after us and gave us a wonderful introduction to the beautiful Tweed River, its surroundings, history, Aboriginal connections and birdlife -as well as a delicious seafood lunch. We saw lots of birdlife including ospreys, had... More

Kids and I had a great experience cruising up the tweed river, even though we are locals it's a whole new perspective . Engaging for the kids with a lovely lunch.
