    It was an amazing day! Very informative and interesting history provided by our tour guide, Jarrod. He spoke clearly and did a very good job in looking after his group.

    Fabulous views on the flight both ways, scenic coastlines of cliffs, beaches and islands and on return the mountains! Loved the boat trip on Bathurst Harbour and the side trips and short walks to enjoy the fabulous views. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable. The morning tea and lunch were great and enjoyed with a Tasmanian Pinot noir. It was also interesting to learn some historical information about the area.

We had a wonderful cruise and the staff were excellent. Guides were very knowledgeable and the presentations on board were informative of the area and history. We were very lucky with the weather which enhanced the whole experience. Sarah Island was a highlight as was the walk in the forest in the world heritage area. Highly recommend World Heritage Cruise on Macquarie Harbour Strahan.
