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.

As the Yamba locals call it we were off to have lunch at the very rustic hotel in Iluka (Siberia). Fare was $81 for 4 adults and 2 kids. Great service, awesome views and comfy ride. Approx 30-40 min each with many trips each day....More
