Overview

Cruise the magnificent Lakes of Mallacoota onboard the historic MV Loch Ard built in 1910. Take in some of the most pristine wilderness Australia has to offer. Watch the magestic White Bellied Sea Eagles feed and capture some great photos. Hear some interesting commentary from Capt Dale Winward on the history of Mallacoota's early pioneers and indiginous culture. Affordable for the whole family.

Chap was very nice but there is not much to see. Taken to the outside of an old house which is now part of a school. Great if you like to be on a boat for 2 hours.

Capt. Dale Winward is a font of knowledge on the local waterways and bird life, and the boat is a slice of history on it's own! This is a must do and see activity when you are in Mallacoota, highly recommended

A beautiful cruise across the lake on a 106 year old boat, with a pair of sea eagles circling. Excellent for bird watching. Very kid friendly. Reasonably priced. Personable captain who gave an informative commentary. Highly recommended.
