« Back to scenic cruises

The Murray River, once a busy inland trade route, is today a perfect choice for a relaxing cruise.

In its heyday, many towns along the Murray were bustling ports. Today, some of these towns operate paddlesteamer fleets with people as their cargo. A variety of cruise options are on offer, from short one hour cruises to overnight cruising adventures giving a real taste of life aboard a paddlesteamer. Lunch and dinner cruises are also available, and some paddlesteamers can be chartered for functions.
