Ferry celebration

The Noosa Ferry Cruise operations at Noosa Marina will mark their 10th birthday on Friday.

The ferries in their short history have become an icon of the river, acting as a daily visitor link between Noosa Heads and Tewantin.

The company, which operates two classic ferries, carries more than 60,000 passengers a year.

A morning tea will be followed by a colourful flotilla of classic Noosa riverboats led by the company’s ferries Riverlight and Miss Tewantin, departing the marina at 11.50pm for Noosa Heads and the Hastings Street relaunch.

Member for Noosa Glen Elmes and Tourism Noosa CEO Steve Cooper will be joined by special guests Michealeem Barson (Massoud), whose family launched the first Riverlight in 1912, and Iris Parkyn, whose family operated the Miss Tewantin in the 1920s.
