Your Itinerary

Day 1 - Mundurra

(Friday) Depart Adelaide via scenic coach transfer and travel to historic Mannum where you 3 night cruise will depart at 16:30. Learn about the significance of this quaint township as the birthplace of the Murray River trade and communication as you head downriver whilst enjoying pre-dinner drinks and a Welcome Dinner.

As the Murray Princess paddles pound the calm waters watch out for the nocturnal wildlife on the banks of your floodlit overnight morring at Mundurra. Watch for kangaroos, hairy-nosed wombats, tortoises, egrets and many other species.

Enjoy the evening entertainment and dance the night away before settling down in your private cabin.

Day 2 - Murray Bridge

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 Zoo (additional cost).

Those who chose to experience Monarto Zoo will arrive back on board the Murray Princess in time for lunch. Continue cruising upriver with a brief stop-over in Mannum for a fascinating visit to Mannum Dock Museum (additional cost) or some free time to explore the township.

The journey upriver continues towards the overnight mooring at Salt Bush Flat.

After dinner, enjoy being entertained by the talented crew.

Day 3 - River View Lodge

All ashore for the guided nature walk where your guide will share the secrets of the local flora and fauna. It’s a great way to get in a little exercise before Murray Princess departs for the big river gorges and 90 metre cliffs of the upper river.

Mid-morning, join your fellow travellers in the Sturt Dining room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the Riverland.

Just after Fromms Landing, we turn 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, we explore the maze of the river and the birdlife is amazing. Watch for darters, herons and egrets feeding along the river’s muddy edges.

The afternoon offers a choice of bocce or fishing challenges before joining the Captain and Officers for the Farewell Dinner and Dance.

Day 4 - Mannum & Adelaide

Your cruise meanders its way back to Mannum and after breakfast, it is time to say a reluctant farewell as you arrive at the Mannum Wharf.

Coach transfers will then take you back to Adelaide city centre (11:30) or airport (12:00).
