Really enjoyed our trip on the ferry. It is so convenient - can be boarded in Iluka or Yamba. The voyage is picturesque and very atmospheric. Everything to do at your destination can be done on foot.

We were a party of 10 who went to Ilima on the ferry and then took the cruise up the Clarence River to Harwood and back to Yamba. Great way to see parts of the river you don’t see otherwise.
