Go back in time and board the Chinese Junk which is an altogether different experience - she is a vintage authentic Chinese junk and an extremely comfortable boat. Be lulled on one of their two hour trips and enjoy either a yummy morning tea scenic cruise, a tasty fish & chip lunch cruise or a spectacular sunset cruise. Take in the sights of the picturesque river while listening to the informative commentary, and be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins which are spotted on most trips. With experienced friendly and knowledgeable staff, they are sure to make your river cruise a memorable occasion."

What a lovely way to spend some time in Port Macquarie. My husband and I were picked up outside our accommodation and whisked down to the town wharf. We chose to cruise on the fish n chip lunch trip. The quaint boat has plenty of comfortable seating undercover and out in the fresh air. Mother Mature was kind enough to... More

Lovely scenery and informative commentary. Great value for money at $16 for a 2 hr cruise with morning tea and a pick up from the motel!

The trip we made on boxing day 2014 was excellent. The staff were so friendly and informative on the life of the junk prior to coming to Port Macquarie. We enjoyed it so much we bought the t shirts male and female. Enjoyed a great day.

We took the sunset fish and chips cruise and we liked it. The cruise goes up the Hasting River, taking about 2 hours end to end. Half-way through, the boat docks and fish and chips are delivered on board. To make it perfect, bring your own bottle of wine of some beer. The boat is well-equipped for this king of... More

We went on the pre-dinner cruise on a sunny Saturday afternoon with 3 kids age 7-10 years. We brought our own food and a couple of beers and some wine. This was essential to keeping the kids happy and as long as they were fed they were happy while my wife and I relaxed back on the comfy couches. We... More

We did the sunset fish & chip trip, 4th Nov 2014 - thoroughly enjoyed the trip, food was good and a big thank you to the bubbly, multi-skilled Jodie who made the day. What a great personality she has. Jim & Carole
