Welcome to Franklin Eco Cruises
Franklin Eco Cruises operate two hour cruises on the picturesque Huon River departing Sunday, Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11am from Petty Sessions Jetty in Franklin (located along side Petty Sessions Gourmet Cafe at the southern end of the township). Our journey takes us up river taking a close look around the foreshore of Franklin while learning a little of the History of the region. We then head further north past Huonville and explore the upper reaches of the Huon River, turning around near Ranelagh. On our return to Franklin we circumnavigate North Egg Island. The Egg Islands have an important eco system and cover a total of 430 hectares of which 279 hectares is already a conservation area. This cruise includes morning tea. Many other options are available for cruising.
