Overview
Spend a leisurely seven nights exploring South Australia's mighty Murray River on the paddleboat PS Murray Princess. Along the way you'll see breathtaking landscapes, explore historical sites and get up close to some spectacular wildlife, as well as sampling the region's excellent food and wine.
Day 1
Mannum
The PS Murray Princess sets off from historic Mannum in the mid-afternoon. As you cruise to your overnight mooring at Murdarra you'll enjoy pre-dinner drinks and a welcome dinner. Keep your eyes open and you'll spot plenty of wildlife on the riverbank, including kangaroos, wombats, tortoises and spoon-beaked egrets.

Murray Bridge
After breakfast you'll head off for a guided tour of Murray Bridge. This picturesque town marks the spot where, in 1879, the first bridge was built across the Murray River. After the tour it's back on board to continue your journey upriver, mooring at Craignook overnight, where you'll enjoy dinner and the Murray River Cup.

Day 3
Murray River
This morning it's time for a little gentle exercise, with a guided nature walk to learn about the local flora and fauna. Afterwards, as the PS Murray Princess sets off for the upper river, with its spectacular gorges and 90-metre cliffs, you can enjoy a presentation on the mouth-watering food and wine of the region. Then it's downriver to River View Lodge for a backwater wildlife tour. You'll explore the river in small groups, paying particular attention to the birds – darters, herons and egrets. Later, have your camera poised for a spectacular river sunset, before you join the Captain and officers for pre-dinner drinks and the Captain's Dinner and Dance.
