Nepean Belle Paddlewheeler

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Soak up some old-world charm aboard the Nepean Belle Paddlewheeler as you cruise the Nepean River into the foothills of the Blue Mountains and the majestic Nepean Gorge.

“The Belle”, as she’s affectionately known, is an icon in western Sydney. With a design based on Mississippi sternwheelers, she has been parading her classic looks up and down these waters since 1982.

Regular cruises include Morning in the Gorge, the Scenic Adventure Cruise, the Twilight River Feast and the Historical Discovery Cruise. You can even take an Afternoon Tea Psychic Cruise, featuring a one-on-one psychic reading.

Food ranges from Devonshire teas to three-course dinners, with all meals freshly prepared on board each day, and special cruises are held throughout the year to celebrate occasions such as Mother’s Day and New Year’s Eve.

The Belle is fully air-conditioned. You can also head outside to soak up the fresh mountain air from its viewing decks, and watch the river roll by.

Relax and unwind on the Nepean Belle Paddlewheeler as you meander through the spectacular Nepean Gorge. There’s nothing quite like the stunning ascending rock formations carved out by the Nepean River – one of Australia’s beautiful and largely unknown, natural archaeological splendours at the base of the Heritage Listed, Blue Mountains National Park.

The combination of the unique scenery and the majestic Nepean Belle provides excellent photo opportunities you can treasure for years to come.
