Your adventure begins with a transfer from your home to Adelaide’s city centre.
★ Indulge in a delicious 2-course lunch at the Mercure Grosvenor Hotel in the heart of the city.
After lunch, you will be transferred to historic Mannum, the birthplace of Murray River trade & communication.
★ Board the PS Murray Princess and enjoy a welcome dinner as you cruise up the river.
As we cruise under floodlight to our overnight mooring at Caurnamont, you may see nocturnal wildlife on the riverbank. Watch for kangaroos, hairy-nosed wombats, tortoises, egrets and many other species.
Later, dance the night away with music by the onboard entertainer.
❱ 4 nights: Murray Princess
Daybreak and time for the keen photographers to be out to capture the special light and the morning movement of wildlife. The morning is an ideal time to spot the local wildlife. Prolific birdlife includes pelicans, wrens and swans.
★ Enjoy a leisurely morning and lunch cruising upriver to Blanchetown through one of 13 locks which maintain the flow and levels of water.
This afternoon, we moor opposite to the township of Blanchetown for our overnight anchorage.
★ As the last rays of the sun fade, we join a tour of Burk Salter Boutique Winery and surrounding vineyard and enjoy wine tasting at the cellar door which is fitted out with beautiful red gum bars.
Take a guided tour of the Burk Salter vineyards and stop by the cellar door, one of Australia’s undiscovered secrets. Take in the spectacular views of the vineyard, River Murray & towering cliffs as you partake in some tastings. After dinner, join us for all the fun & excitement, and participate in our “Murray River Cup”.
★ After breakfast, we cruise downriver to picturesque Swan Reach – a town which was originally the largest of 5 sheep & cattle stations in the area and is now home to native flower and fruit growers.
The original Swan Reach homestead is now the Swan Reach Hotel where you may wish to enjoy a cappuccino (own expense). Join the guided walking tour before cruising downriver after lunch and take in the tranquillity as the landscape slides by.
★ When we arrive at Sunnydale, it’s all ashore for the Woolshed Show as we recreate typical Australian woolshed history.
We visit the Native Wildlife Shelter where some of South Australia’s most interesting native animals are cared for. And then of course, there is the great Aussie BBQ – cooked & served in a bush setting on the banks of the mighty Murray River. An optional Nocturnal tour is available tonight.
After an optional Bush Tucker Breakfast (extra cost) or a bush walk with the Captain, the vessel cruises slowly downriver past magnificent cliffs scoured by the river over millions of years.
★ We reach Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal Reserve, one of Australia’s most significant archaeological sites, for a step back in time.
Join a guided boardwalk tour to view ancient rock carvings and to learn about Aboriginal history in the area. We return to the vessel to cruise downriver to Younghusband. Along the way, adventure seekers can also take a scenic boat ride.
Tonight, the Captain and his officers host a spectacular Farewell Captain’s Buffet Dinner.
We leave Younghusband and head back to Mannum. After breakfast, we reluctantly say farewell as we arrive at the Mannum Wharf. We then travel back to Adelaide where you will be met and transferred to your home.
