Wildlife is abundant, including frequent sighting of pelicans, black swans, oyster catchers and sea eagles to name but a few. Dolphins are frequently sighted in Wallis Lake and the occasional sea turtle. There have been rarer sightings of dugong and even a fur seal in the lake. Take in lunch and be part of the conversation, perhaps partaking in a beverage from the fully licensed bar. Learn a little of the areas history, both aboriginal and european, the commercial fishing and aquaculture industries and about our unique environment. The Free Spirit makes the perfect venue for a get together with family and friends. Book today...you'll love it!

we went on the 2.5 hour lunch cruise around the lake it was beautiful, the skipper gave an informed toour of all the points of interest, lunch was a damper roll, salad , turkey and ham, tea and coffee, then to top it off warm apple pie and cream and more tea and coffee, all for $50 per adult great value.

Hi Marion and Peter. I know that you were out with us some time ago, but I've just worked out where to make my response. We are pleased that you enjoyed the Free Spirit cruise and thought that it was good value for $. Recently we cruised Tasmania and the Whitsundays on small charter vessels. Whole families can travel with us for the price of indivual adults at other Aussie destinations. It would be nice to catch up again. Regards, Peter and Jacqui

Had a great luncheon cruise on the Free Spirit - even though it was raining and only 6 of us booked it was much appreciated that the cruise went ahead - had our elderly parents with us and they really enjoyed it as well - excellent commentary - lovely fresh lunch - thankyou to Peter & Jacqui - will definitely go again.

This cruise departs Forster and goes past Pacific Palms and all the way to Coomba Park around Wallis Islands and comes back in at Tuncurry past the bridge before ending.
During the cruise the "skipper" lets you know what has happened in the past and is happening in the lake today. This is done without raving on just short stories as you cruise past different locations. Great lunch 2 course, with tea and coffee. Licenced. This is really relaxing, I live in Forster and have done this cruise several times Highly recommended.
