Tweed River CruisesWhy not make the most of the Gold Coast river system and hire a boat or BBQ pontoon for the day. Most places don’t require a boat licence (although it’s a bonus if you have one). There are a couple of different places you can hire from along the Tweed River, so check in with reception to see if we have any promotions on at the time of your stay.

Cruise the river, explore, or drop a line and go fishing (just make sure you grab a fishing licence for the day as you’ll be crossing the QLD/NSW border) or you can hire a BBQ pontoon boat and have the ultimate BBQ with the best views.
