    Our Skippers provide an entertaining commentary telling the story of the region, and pointing out various landmarks including the many Sculptures and Art Installations, the site of the first European landings in the mid 1860s and the vessel they arrived on which is still sitting up on the riverbank.
    Our Cafe Menu includes Toasted Paninis, Pulled Beef Nachos, Homebaked Fritatta, Sliders and our popular Smoked Chicken Salad. A selection of delicious Muffins, Cookies and Slices are also available along with Espresso Coffee, Tea & Chocolate.
