Day 1

Travel through rolling hills and Mallee outback to the mighty Murray River bringing watered life to a thirsty land - a land now rich in green vineyards, golden citrus orchards and prosperous rural communities. Mannum - the birthplace of the River Murray Paddlesteamers and the River Murray gateway to the harsh empty inland of Australia, still reeking with our historic past - the bawdy days of the riverboat men toiling up river in the blazing sun.

  • Arid pasture region of the Murraylands
  • Mannum - birthplace of the River Murray Paddlesteamers
  • Cruise the wide waters of the Murray on a riverboat
  • Enjoy a delightful morning tea or coffee with a biscuit on board
  • Stark cliffs and River Red Gums
  • Willows that burden the waters of the Mighty Murray
  • Look for galahs, cockatoos and pelicans
  • A delicious buffet lunch is served on board your riverboat as you cruise the Murray waters
  • Admire the fully restored 100 year old PS Marion Paddlesteamer
