Both are already popular tourist attractions on the mid north coast, locals and visitors alike can now experience the best of both worlds on this fantastic half-day tour.
Guests will board the Port Venture/River Princess at The Cruise Terminal at 8.45am. The two-hour cruise offers a scenic journey along the Hastings River from three different viewing levels; highlights include dolphin watching, informative commentary and relaxing on our picturesque waterways. Guests will be treated to a high tea including a selection of sweets and savouries, matched with Cassegrain sparkling wine.
At the conclusion of the cruise, guests will be picked up from Sancrox Park and transported on an air-conditioned coach to Cassegrain Winery. Cassegrain Winery is a charming estate featuring manicured hedges, expansive parklands and over two thousand rose bushes. Guests will enjoy a behind-the-scenes guided tour of the winery, followed by tastings of their award-winning range in the spacious Cellar Door. A gourmet lunch will then be served in Seasons Café-Restaurant, with a chefs’ selection of tasting platters on offer, paired with a complimentary glass of wine.
Guests depart Cassegrain Winery at 2.30pm and will be returned to the Port Macquarie central business district.
