Leave your cares behind as you step aboard a specially imported drift boat to experience a wonderful 2-2.5 hour drift down the majestic Goulburn River between the towns of Eildon and Alexandra.

Explore this diverse and beautiful river system and view the elusive native platypus at close quarters in their natural habitat. Their experienced guides will get you close enough to view them with the naked eye, often to within five – ten metres.

Over the past 25 years they’ve had an amazing 90 per cent sighting success rate.

Other regularly seen species include: Wedged tailed eagles, swans, kookaburras, kingfishers, wombats, kangaroos, koalas and echidnas.

The drift boats provide the perfect platform for exploring this large river. These handcrafted boats are safe, stable and silent; and can take up to three guests (and a guide) per boat.

All of the boats are skippered by an experienced river guide with over 25 years of guiding experience. Your guide will maneuver the boat, point out animals, birds and areas of interest, as well as ensure your complete safety while out on the water.

Drift boat trips are available everyday of the year.
