M.V. “George Robinson” is a beautiful old steel-hulled craft fitted out with Tasmanian timber and brass. This iconic vessel has been plying the Arthur River and feeding the sea eagles for 30 years.
We depart daily at 10am from the Arthur River township, returning at 3pm.
Passengers are able to move freely around the vessel, including the front and rear viewing decks which allow opportunities for stunning photographs. Having the helm located in the main passenger lounge invites free flowing discussion with the Skipper and also promotes a relaxed and jovial atmosphere.
Enjoy the serenity of the river and the unhurried pace of the MV George Robinson. Be spellbound by the magical reflections of the lush vegetation in the tannin coloured river. Drink in the pristine densely forested river banks of celery top pine, sassafras, leatherwood, blackwood, myrtle, wattles and rare Smithton peppermint.
At Turk’s landing gaze up at the giant brown top stringybark (Tassie Oak) and marvel at the ancient giant tree ferns.
We cater for from 2 to 52 passengers on our cruise: Children and Guests with a disability are welcome.
There are toilet facilities on board the vessel.
