Itinerary

Just an hour east of Adelaide’s city centre, Mannum is a world away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Once an important river port, Mannum is now a popular holiday town that is renowned for its easy access to the Murray River as well as its extensive parks and numerous river-based attractions. Mannum is known as the “birthplace of the paddle steamer” – the first ship (a side-wheel paddle steamer) was built on the Murray River and launched here by William Randell in 1852. Mannum’s shipbuilding industry then continued into the 20th century.

The Murray River which flows through Mannum is one of Australia’s longest rivers at 2,508km! The river rises in the Australian Alps near the border of New South Wales and Victoria and meanders across inland plains into South Australia. It turns south at Morgan for its final 315km past Mannum and Murray Bridge, reaching the eastern edge of Lake Alexandrina. As part of your tour you will experience a 1 ½ hour scenic cruise on the picturesque Murray River from Mannum with commentary on the river’s unique birdlife, flora and fauna.

Onboard morning tea and lunch at the Mannum Community Club is also included. The club is a great venue located in the heart of Mannum with extensive views over the Murray River.

On the return journey to the City, we visit Melba’s, a local, handcrafted chocolate factory in a venue reminiscent of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. It’s an enjoyable stop to watch the treats being made and an opportunity for you to stock up on local supplies. Enjoy Melba’s choccies and explore some of the beautiful giftware range.
