Nepean Belle Paddlewheeler

Cruise along the Nepean River on this romantic old world style paddle wheeler

Experience for yourself the joy of the Nepean Gorge and see why the Nepean Belle is such an icon after spending almost 40 years cruising the Nepean River. The boat's design was based on the Mississippi sternwheelers, and was the last hull project built by De Havilland Marine at Homebush Bay. 

The location, good food, atmosphere and romantic old world charm leads to a truly unique experience.

Enjoy a relaxing Devonshire tea, lunch or dinner while onboard.
