Private Charter

Sample some of the finest Locally brewed Craft Beers & Neapolitan Woodfired Pizza on a River Cruise

The Drover is waiting, fire alight and ready to take you on a wood fired pizza and craft beer EX-BEER-IENCE like no other… all while cruising and taking in the sights of the majestic Mooloolaba  River, Canals and waterways.

Come aboard relax and take a seat on the comfortable club lounge. With your own personal skipper, we commence a 2 ½ hour river cruise of the Mooloolah River and Waterways around Mooloolaba. The Drover is not only unique to Mooloolaba but is Australia’s ONLY Woodfired Pizza River Cruising vessel. Once underway, the EXBEERIENCE begins with a beer paddle line up of some great award winning  locally brewed Craft Beers here on the Sunshine Coast. To complement these Craft Beers, you will be served up some of the best Neapolitan Woodfired Pizza’s you will ever have tasted. Prepared, hand stretched, cooked and served straight out of an Italian Woodfired Pizza Oven. Your Pizzaiolo, Shane Bellingham along with his wife Jodie, having over 25 years of pizza making experience behind them, will present you some of their multi award winning pizzas. From the traditional style Italian Margherita, to their signature Mooloolaba Prawn and Sweet Chili Pizza. Their pizzas are created using the finest traditional ingredients available, imported from Italy. Using Neapolitan 00 pizza flour, Fior Di Latte Mozzarella and San Marzano tomatoes which they use as the foundation to produce a mouth-watering pizza sauce, you will think you are in Italy.

They hand make their dough using traditional methods with a 48-hour fermentation process, then the dough hand stretched and topped using fresh local produce all right before you. Shane will share with you his knowledge of pizza as well as the history behind pizza while you take in the surrounding views and attractions.

Throughout the cruise you will see such iconic attractions as the Mooloolaba Wharf which is now home to a variety restaurants and bars. You will cruise around Mooloolah and Minyama Islands that showcase some of the Coast’s finest waterfront homes. As “The Drover” then heads down Kawana Waters Canal you will then be taken past the waterfront home of Irwin’s where you will see the vessel “Crock One” the boat that was owned by Steve Irwin, Australia’s famous “Crocodile Hunter”! As you  start on the final leg of the cruise you will  head down to the river mouth at Point Cartwright where you will get to see the local fishing trawlers and where they come into offload their fresh catch of seafood at the renowned Mooloolaba Spit.

Should you have a group of six or more, we can fully customize the cruise and tour times to suit your function or corporate outing.

This is not just a river cruise…. This is an EXBEERIENCE & Pizza indulgence like no other and is a must do when on the Sunshine Coast, Mooloolaba and the surrounding areas!
