Murray River Discovery Tour

Murray River Discovery Tour - Hero

Independent Tours

Cruise along ‘the Mighty Murray’ river on board a distinctly Australian and historic side wheel paddle steamer and you’ll be immersed in a bygone era but with all modern-day comforts. You’ll learn about the region’s pioneering history, enjoy riverside walks, picnics and dining under the stars. Join a wine tasting session and keep an eye out for some of Australia’s unique wildlife along the way including kangaroos, wombats, egrets and many other species of birds. This is the perfect way to kick back, take it slow and let the beauty of the river unfold.
