Cowan Creek Boat Day

River Adventures

Select Option


This tour gives a front row seat to the beautiful bays, beaches and bushland of Cowan Creek. Running almost perfectly undisturbed in the middle of Ku-Ring-Gai Chase National Park, it hosts wild waterfalls, waterfront restaurants, jump rocks, and examples of indigenous rock art.

Explore the pristine waters from the front of our custom-made river cruiser, or get out and amongst it with a hike to Warrah Trig or West Head, with breathtaking views over the waters.

We provide wraps to eat in the wild for lunch, or guests can choose to enjoy a meal at a waterfront restaurant at Cottage Point or Patonga. Coffee, tea, water and fruit are included.

There is even the chance to try tubing or wake boarding, or take a plunge from Jerusalem Bay!

Cowan Creek is an absolute treasure. With no roads, no buildings, and barely even any walking tracks - our boat is the best way to experience it.
