Murray River we saw was at Tocumwal over the Victorian Border into New South Wales. Two states divide by this River. Some days calm River some days strong current. Allow camping by the Murray River quite cheaply $5.50 per person per day. Can canoe on it. It got a beach and it surrounded heavily with gum tree's scent beautiful smell.... More

We are around age 50 & were the youngest amongst the passengers - They were mostly in there 60s & older. That was OK for us because we wanted a quiet & relaxed weekend & were fascinated with the idea of doing... More

Thoroughly enjoyed this relaxing 5 hour cruise. Departed Mildura 10.30am, quick detour downstream to view Lock 11 then 2 hours upstream to Trentham Estate winery. Treated to a guided tour, wine tasting (wide range of wines at good prices) & bbq lunch before back on the vessel to Mildura, arriving back at 3.30pm. Paddlesteamer was charming with plenty of room... More

Greatly looking forward to the 4 night round trip from Mannum but unfortunately we were very disappointed. Our very first and most important suggestion would be to the cruise director, on our trip Michael. At the culmination of the initial meet and greet/safety talk we believe he should strongly mention, for the comfort and consideration of other passengers, not to... More

We recently took a 4 night cruise from Mannum in South Australia on the paddle-wheeler Murray Princess. The vessel carries about 120 passengers and was close to full on out trip. Generally the trip was relaxing and enjoyable. Besides the fabulous river-side scenery the shore excursions were interesting, including a night-time bush barbeque, a vineyard visit and a trip to...

When I came onboard the Murray Princess I had no idea what to expect but I was soon overwhelmed by the amount of acceptance I received from all the Crew. A few people I must mention, one being the Talented PAUL HAY for the music and Entertainment. I have never met anyone so True Blue! Keeping it low key his... More
