A R Reflections River Cruises are a 6 hour ARTHUR RIVER eco-cruise through beautiful scenery into the heart of the Tarkine Wilderness. Pristine wilderness, waterfalls, platypus, native quoll, azure kingfishers and feeding of the white-bellied sea-eagles are just some of the highlights of this truly Tasmanian river cruise. Departing at 10.15 am and returning at 4.15 pm the river cruise is a must do experience whilst holidaying in Tasmania. The vessel has a full flybridge deck for maximum 360 degrees viewing and for taking great photo shots. A delicious lunch is served undercover in the rainforest at Warra Landing followed by a breathtaking rainforest walk to Warra Waterfalls. Warm clothing and suitable footwear is advisable to be worn. All food and beverages are provided on this River Cruise. River Cruises are closed for winter months June/July & August. Accommodation at Arthur River Holiday Units and River Cruise packages are available.

The captain explained the flora and fauna and a bit of history of the river.fed the sea eagles. The walk in the rainforest was of interest but not very well signed. Lunch was tasty and filling. The boat was comfortable.

Brilliant cruise, the captain went out of his way to accomodate the photographers on board. Very knowledgable about fauna and flora, we saw white breasted sea eagles and even a kingfisher. The eagles received some morsels, they dived down onto the water to get it, where does one has the opportunity to see that in the wild? We also saw... More

I chose the less comfortable option of paddling the 3 hours up the river and back. Thought the wife and kids may have got bored on the cruise, but they had a fantastic day. I've never seen my kids talk so much about things they learnt on the cruise. Food was great, especially considering the context of the remote lunch... More

This cruise was amazing. It was a genuine thrill to see both Sea Eagles and Kingfisher birds up close. The river itself was beautiful, we enjoyed seeing all the reflections from the comfort of the top deck of our little boat. The walk and lunch spot were also a highlight with delicious food that catered for different dietary requirements. Our... More

We had a tremendous day on this cruise. We spent the whole time when on the boat on the upper deck enthralled by the beautiful reflections, flowering bushes, towering trees and wildlife. Rob was very informative and pointed out many things of interest to us. We particularly liked seeing up-close sea eagles and tiny rare kingfishers. We stopped ashore for... More

MV Reflections is the boat to take down the Arthur River, it has an upper deck with seating or standing for 360 degree flora and fauna viewing, a passionate Captain and no exhaust fume smell during the trip. Our Captain Rob has made a covered area near his landing and an enchanting rainforest walk (very easy) following a creek to... More

From the time we met Kaye at Reception until we left the boat and Rob at the end of a fantastic day we felt very welcome, relaxed and spoilt by their hospitality. Kaye is very warm and welcoming and a wealth of information about the area and the complimentary coffee was a lovely way to start our day with A.R.Reflections.... More
