Picnic's Afloat

Picnic's Afloat

Welcome to the story of Picnics Afloat, two established business women putting their heads together to say what they would love to do with our own individual businesses.

Cushla from Alfresco Pop Up Picnics wanted to be on the water offering another avenue/platform for her creative mind.
Kylie from Tweed Eco Cruises, wanted to serve up beautiful atmosphere of food and local produce in the most scenic way…

Picnics Afloat on the Tweed River was created, between us we hold over 40 years’ experience in events and hospitality, and are known for if you say that’s what you need we will create and believe it.

Tweed Eco Cruises have 3 vessels that you can choose from – Our vintage timber cruiser the Golden Swan, to the modern Captain Bills Explorer, to a nature setting on the VIP explorer.  Our collaborations on the boats can cater from 2 persons to 100 person, styled to perfection, uncompromised in the quality and variety of decor and furnishing held by Alfresco Pop up Picnics.

In 2021 we will be able to offer picnics from Caldera House a private residence, set in the hills of Terranora looking back over the Sugar Cane fields, 180 degree view of the caldera created by Wollubin, with a small orchard of fruit trees and vegetable garden to complement your picnic experience, to the balcony that offers uninterrupted views of the Tweed valley, the river and Wollubin whether we host with food from our selected producers in the region, or a private chef come in uses the facilities in this venue.

Between our 2 business we have insurance and licenses extending from the Gold Coast to Byron Bay, to cover your requirements.
