Picnics on the Water

The Tweed, New South Wales

One of our favourite ways to enjoy a Blue Ginger Picnic is on the water. Step onboard the comfortable riverboat and flow along the waterways of the Tweed Valley in NSW taking in mountain, river and wildlife views.

Dine in style, relaxing on cozy handwoven rugs and plush cushions. A recycled barn-door picnic table is set with local hand-built ceramic tableware and linen napkins.

During the 3-hour cruise feast on a delicious spread of 100% local and seasonal produce, organic where possible. The menu could include handmade dips and cheeses, tropical fruit, freshly baked bread with olive oil and dukkah for dipping, organic olives, fresh wraps and locally farmed pecans and macadamias.

Arrive. Relax. Indulge and soak up wellness in the Tweed.
