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.

Peaceful, relaxing cruise up the Arthur River, the commentary was good and the lunch and wine in the forest sufficient. Was a bit disturbed by the feeding of the wildlife with processed meats etc.

This is a trip up the river in a boat and a quick look at eagles, if you lucky. Lunch was provided and alcohol at a shelter along the river. You can do a walk which is pleasant but nothing really exciting. The remoteness and beauty is great and Rob's knowledge is good.

Highly recommend this boat trip if you are looking for a relaxing day out. Saw plenty of wildlife out on the water and Captain Robwas very obliging with turning the vessel around for photos and cleaning se up views - even of the swimming snake! The package deal of cruise and accommodation is good value.

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.

You have a choice of 2 Arthur River Cruises and I can confidently say that AR Reflections, being the White boat is the best option - Why? The boat has seating on the roof for clear views. Rob has decades of knowledge about this river and its wildlife. The catering for lunch was exceptional as was the wildlife close by... More

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

We have just spent a wonderful day today on the Arthur River with this company. Spectacular scenery, incredibly peaceful surroundings , a great boat and a terrific captain in Rob. He has a wealth of knowledge about the area and its wildlife and a great sense of humour. The top deck on the boat made a world of difference to... 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
