“great mix of wildlife, scenery. Aussie culture and relaxation.”

Pop Sullivan Cruises
Reviewed November 3, 2013

Finally went on a cruise on the Ross River Dam on the outskirts of Townsville city. Should have done it sooner. Pop and Heather Sullivan offer a laid-back Aussie cruise experience on a vessel that has walk-on walk-off access for all ages and wheelchairs. Well shaded and with a toilet on board. They take you around the lake to see the numerous bird-life, wallabies and historical sites of the area. Very interesting and enjoyable.

Liked that it was easy to book and ran on time. They do serve drinks and snacks on board. The wildlife we saw included sea eagles, and a host of other birdlife which was fantastic! However the karaoke-like singalong by Pop was a bit much, I think the older generation really liked it but it wasn't for us. I would've preferred hearing more about the wildlife, like a safari tour game ranger commentary. The commentary on the history of the area was ok but not quite engaging enough at times. Overall it was a reasonable excursion but we thought it was a bit too talked up as the winner of the word of mouth tour so we expected a bit more

The cruise on the Ross River Dam was a great way to see wildlife and just relax with a quiet drink. Pop and Heather were great hosts, friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We got to see the dam up close, a variety of wildlife, especially water birds, the Australian Bustard was a special treat on our trip.
