Its a perfect place for family weekend/holiday if you are in Adelaide or happens to be travelling here. The river side town has all facilities for visitors. The actual river bank has a big park with playground, bar-b-q facilities as well as boat launching facilities. Check out the fishes if you have the time & interest. Take time, cause its... More

Have just finished a 4 day cruise aboard the murray princess. Cost per person was about $980. First and last days are you going to and leaving the boat,so its really a 2 full day cruise. That's advertising for you . The trip was a big disappointment from the tiny rooms to the poor quality of the meals. Cold over... More

My wife and I took the seven day cruise on the Murray Princess from New Year's Day. The pickup was by coach from the Central Bus Station . Upon arrival in Mannum we boarded the Murray Princess almost immediately. The cabin was small but well appointed. The food on the whole trip was very good and the seafood buffet on... More

We loved our 3 day trip with 12 people aboard unforgettable 11 however some points for future travellers to be aware of (or if the company wants to make some adjustments to make the trip better for all), firstly the beds are very hard, the frying pans are not non stick, the boat is lovely however it shows it age,...

Picked up our house boat at Renmark near Paringa and had an amazing week cruising the great Murray River. Saw some amazing wildlife and all amid the tranquility and unspoilt scenery of the location.

Just spent 4 nights on the Unfortgettable Houseboat called "Parachilna Sunset". We had another couple cruising with us and we were amazed at how spacious this boat was. Two ensuite bedrooms and fabulous facilities on board. Plenty of cooking equipment, plates, serving bowls, cutlery, glasses - the list goes on! Not to mention the sunken spa, the bbq, outside fridge,... More

We made a family booking for April 2016 but unfortunately had to cancel. We advised Ken (the owner) thinking that 5+ months notice would be more than enough time to let them know and for them to be able to re-book. Paid $1000 deposit...BUT...should have read the terms and conditions, bad blue. Not only have we lost our $1000 if... More

We had a week on the Murray River travelling by houseboat. It was a great experience travelling up the river at our leisure and tying up for the night. The landscape was always changing and varied during the day and evening with the sun. A wonderful time.

To me this was about the experience of a unique historic form of transport in a new environment. It met my expectations and I very much enjoyed the trip. It is obviously caters for the cruise ship fraternity. At over 70 myself I felt positively young, however the experience can be enjoyed by a wide age group. The shore activities... More
