WHAT TO EXPECT

This tour is a short introduction to the beautiful, historic Murray River, between Walker Flat and Murray Bridge. Aboard the paddle-wheeler PS Murray Princess, you will cruise through spectacular riverlands and enjoy the variety of flora and fauna. You'll embark on a nature walk, spot river birdlife on board a flat-bottomed boat, visit the township of Murray Bridge, and learn about the food and wine of this region.

 

Itinerary:

Day 1:

 

Mid-afternoon, the PS Murray Princess departs historic Mannum, the birthplace of the Murray River trade and communication. The boat will head downriver while you enjoy a Welcome Dinner. As the tour cruises under floodlight to overnight mooring at Mundurra, you may see nocturnal wildlife on the riverbank. Watch for kangaroos, hairy-nosed wombats, tortoises, egrets, and many other species. An entertainer provides music for the night owls.

 

Day 2: 

 

In 1879, the first bridge to span the Murray River was built at Edwards Crossing, which quickly became the bustling township of Murray Bridge. After a hearty breakfast, choose to join a guided tour of the town’s historic landmarks and local attractions or go on a wildlife tour at Monarto Safari Park (additional cost).

 

Those who want to experience Monarto Safari Park will arrive back on board the Murray Princess in time for lunch then join the tour in the Sturt Dining Room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the Riverland. In the afternoon, the tour will continue its journey upriver and moor at Salt Bush Flat. After dinner, enjoy entertainment from the talented crew.

 

Day 3:

 

In the morning, join a guided nature walk where a guide will share secrets of the local flora and fauna. It’s a great way to exercise before the PS Murray Princess departs and cruises downriver. Near Fromms Landing, the tour turns and head downriver to River View Lodge (near Piggy Flat / Coolcha) where your discovery vessel awaits for a wildlife tour.

 

Travelling in small, personalised groups, the tour explores the maze of the river and the birdlife. Watch for darters, herons, and egrets feeding along the river’s muddy edges. The afternoon offers a choice of bocce or fishing challenges before a delicious final night dinner in the Sturt Dining Room.

 

Day 4:

 

The tour travels back to Mannum and after breakfast and bids farewell upon arrival at the Mannum Wharf.
