Tweed Eco Cruises offers an unforgettable four and a half-hour return trip to Stott’s Island, with a stopover at the riverside village of either Tumbulgum or Chinderah (tide dependent on which village we visit). Relax aboard the river cruiser, the Golden Swan, as you embrace the soothing surrounds of the resource-rich Tweed River, the lifeblood of an ecologically diverse former volcanic region known as the Green Cauldron, with the riverbank lined with sugar cane fields and lush rainforest. Under the watchful gaze of the ruggedly imposing Mt Warning, you’re treated to a sumptuous on-board seafood or BBQ lunch.
