Took this tour with my 10 year old and 5 years old, and we had an unforgettable day! My kids loved pumping yabbies and feeding the pelicans. Great value, and would recommend it to everyone with young kids.

Joined this tour with 3 of my friends, and we had so much fun. Easily one of the best experiences I have had in Australia. Give it a try!

So much fun and the activities were really interesting. It was my first time pumping yabbies and I really loved it.

The experience starts off at 9:00 AM. A number of activities are planned during the cruise and are perfect for big groups.

Start off your cruise with some fishing. Throw a line into the water, and have a friendly competition with your friends, family, and other cruise members to see who has caught the most fish in the day. Next up, get your feet wet and walk in the shallow water and sandbars as you pump yabbies. You can then pull up the various crab pots placed in the water and see if you were lucky to catch some mud crabs. You can then enjoy an interactive show centered around the mighty mud crab. Your river guide will talk about some other activities and the local waterways of the region.

In the meantime, you can also catch some stunning views of nature all around you. The beautiful waterways of Terranora lakes present numerous unique photo opportunities. The final activity is pelican feeding, where you can get close to these massive birds and have the chance to take some photos.

At the end of 3 hours, the experience will come to an end.
