located a short walk from the city centre. a two hour boat ride on a paddle steamer, plus intersting and informative historic displays at the centre. you can book you ride from the centre, online or by phone. we phoned after hours, left a message and we were called back. it was very easy.
the ride takes you up the scenic Whangnaui River. A crew member gives you a introductory commentary on the history of the boat and it's original owner. The whole crew are friendly and were able to answer questions about the river, the area and it's history.
It's an relaxing two hour ride. there are undercover as well as outdoor areas on the boat. The was a nice tea room that did some great scones. And passengers are invited to visit the engine room and even shovel coal, if they wish.
Nice to enjoy the scenery from the vantage point of the river, instead of theough the windsreen of a car while negotiating the windy road!
This is a gentle and relaxing trip, and we recommend it.
