Overview

Go back in time and board the Chinese Junk which is an altogether different experience - she is a vintage authentic Chinese junk and an extremely comfortable boat. Be lulled on one of their two hour trips and enjoy either a yummy morning tea scenic cruise, a tasty fish & chip lunch cruise or a spectacular sunset cruise. Take in the sights of the picturesque river while listening to the informative commentary, and be sure to keep an eye out for dolphins which are spotted on most trips. With experienced friendly and knowledgeable staff, they are sure to make your river cruise a memorable occasion.

Beautiful couple of hours on the river. Boat was a bit crowded. Could do better with the cake served with tea and coffee, stale and nasty.

My partner and me went for a 2 hour afternoon cruise on the Chinese Junk and had an enjoyable experience with an interesting skipper who gave us plenty of historical information. Pleasant afternoon.

A very relaxing and enjoyable cruise on the Hastings River on a classic, genuine Chinese junk. The Captain was most capable and very entertaining with his commentary of both history and points of interest. Highly recommended if visiting Port.

Went on the Junk boat cruise around Port Macquarie area. $25 for an adult. 2 hr cruise. fee includes tea,coffee and cake. Capt talks about Port Macquarie history. Very interesting but definitely not worth $25 per head.
