The most popular boat cruise on the Sunshine Coast. The Historic Timber ferry MV Mudjimba has been operating at its current location for 26 years. During this relaxing still-water cruise, you see Million dollar Mansions and Yachts, see wild pelicans being hand fed from the side of the boat and get to feed wild fish at the end of the cruise. A live and informative commentary is provided as you cruise. We now have a lunch option available before or after your cruise. The kids get a chance to steer the boat as well.

As a foreigner living in Australia's central desert region I am used to much more respect being paid to Australia's indigenous peoples. As such I was shocked that there was no acknowledgement of country and also that the tour guide stated that the region was, 'discovered' by settlers and did not seem aware of the irony of his next sentence...

Took the cruise for $20 and the $10 lunch option at the Tavern. The cruise was very relaxing, our Captain was very informative on this fabulous look around the canals. The lunch at the tavern was good value considering it was only $10. Recommended

When in Maloolaba, dont miss the river/canal cruise with lunch. You will not regret it. The seafood lunch was plain but for the price, no complaints because the cruise was great. The captain was also the tour guide and he was very good. He was entertaining and also added a lot of local information and stories about the sites we... More

Whenever friends and family visit the coast, I always take them on the canal cruise. The skipper's commentary is interesting and the kids have a blast steering the boat and feeding the fish. We've done the cruise and tavern lunch deal (yum!) plus have also taken our own picnic lunch onboard other times. There's a toilet and drinks for sale... More
