Port of Gordon River, Tasmania

Set within the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, cruises along the Gordon River start at Strahan, then sail past Hell's Gates, a narrow gap where the Southern Ocean meets Macquarie Harbour, before arriving at the former penal colony of Sarah Island. Along the way are ancient rainforests filled with Huon Pines, some as old as 2,000 years, as well as Tasmania's famous fish farms. The reflections of the surrounding landscapes upon the water are considered a sight in themselves.
