What people are saying about Byron Bay Hinterland

Our tour guide Tom was so so lovely. Very knowledgeable and knew alot of byron bay and it’s history. He took us to all the spots and they were beautiful, unfortunately the weather was not the best that day but it was all worth it. The crystal castle was amazing and definitely worth a visit. Lunch was provided with a BBQ made by Tom just burgers and chips, simple and easy, you can’t complain! Anyway we just want to say thanks to Tom as he was genuinely such a good person and tour guide.

Brunswick is renowned for 'Simple Pleasures" and nothing beats the beauty and tranquillity of a cruise from The Brunswick upstream taking in all it has to offer culminating in an uninterrupted view of Mt Chincogan the crowning glory of the Brunswick valley. Wildlife abounds from the tiny sacred Kingfisher to the White - breasted sea eagle . The coffee and cake was delightfully served to us from our congenial hosts.

I enjoyed the whole day! The tour guide Tom was lovely and knowledgeable and cooked us lunch! I especially loved the Crystal castle and the gardens! The lighthouse was beautiful. Could've missed going to bangalow, not much to see or do but was relaxing having lunch there listening to all the birds in the trees

A fabulous way to spend a couple of hours. Super relaxing and enjoyable. Would recommend for anyone wanting to just kick back and relax. The guides were wonderful, helpful, and welcoming. The provided food was great and the glass of wine was greatly appreciated.

Would recommend this cruise highly. Simon made the trip very interesting and he was very knowledgeable about the local flora and fauna. Will definitely do this cruise again. Very enjoyable.
