From the estuary with the distinctive Old Iron Pot Lighthouse and busy recreational and shipping traffic, to the peaceful and picturesque waters further north, this river is an intrinsic part of the city and the lifeblood of the Derwent Valley. The river offers the visitor a unique way to see attractions such as Incat Catamaran Company, Cadbury Schweppes Chocolate Factory and Moorilla Vineyard. The Cruise Company offers excellent combination cruise/attraction tours. Further north there are lovely riverside picnic spots, opportunities for a gentle introduction to white water rafting and along the river's length the fishing is excellent.
