Enjoy River Cruises in on Murchison River in Kalbarri, Western Australia
Enjoy cruising in on Murchison River in Kalbarri, Western Australia! Join us for a fun and entertaining cruise along the lower reaches of the Murchison River in spectacular Kalbarri. Cruises: Cruises operate at 10am or 4pm (times vary in season) daily for 2.5 hours. Departures are based on the timing of the high tide. Weather patterns, pressure systems and the time of year all have an effect on the water levels in the Murchison. By operating on the high tide, this ensures we have full access to the river and travel as far as any vessel can go, seeing all the great stuff! What happens on Tour? Firstly we board the vessel, followed by a brief safety speech and introduction. Grant follows the channel up the river with full commentary along the way with Faye serving complementary cuppas and biscuits. There is no rush and there’s a lot to see…Oh and cold drinks from our bar. The lower reaches are home to a number of species of birdlife including Ospreys, Kites, Pelicans, Egrets,Australian Shell Ducks, Black Swans and our local White Brested Sea Eagles. As well as Emus, Kangaroos and Goats are often seen on the riverbanks. The river at times can be 40mm deep with mullet jumping, small fish and crabs. The Murchison is a very vital ecosystem and what we see on each cruise is always different. At the turn around point there is time to pull up to the shore and take a stroll along the riverbank, then on the return journey plenty of time to relax, take photos and enjoy. The cruise comes to and end at the Murchison River Mouth, one of WA’s most treacherous. It’s impressive to watch the water move through channel and boats come and go.
