What you can expect

Explore Western Australia’s second longest river on a leisurely 2.5 hour Murchison River morning cruise. Setting off from the coastal town of Kalbarri, the cruise will follow the channel up the river with live commentary along the way. There is no rush as you’ll have plenty of things to see along the Murchison River.

Keep your eyes peeled for a number of bird species including Ospreys, Kites, Pelicans, Egrets, Australian Shell Ducks, Black Swans and White Breasted Sea Eagles as they soar above the tree-lined riverbanks. At the turnaround point, the Murchison River cruise will pull up to shore giving you a moment to stroll along the riverbank before a relaxing cruise back to Kalbarri. Cruises depart from Kalbarri at 10am from April to October.
