Despite it being a cold and wet day we throughly enjoyed our 1 hour cruise. It was great being on such an incredible boat- really enjoyed the commentary, watching the engine and just being on the Murray River! And we stayed dry and warm!

My 7 year old Grandson was fascinated by the huge working steam engine inside and the interior view of the paddles working away outside. It was exciting to see the awesome new Echuca/Moama bridge being built across the river (yet to join in the middle), it is going to be a great asset to the area. Great experience. The trip was relaxing and interesting on the mighty Murray it certainly takes you back to older times.

The amount of knowledge was absolutely incredible! Loved the sarcastic tones in there too "i can't tell you who owns the boat but it starts with C and ends with ouncil" 🤣 Was absolutely amazed that we managed to see two kingfishers, great spot by the driver of the boat. Great atmosphere. Can get a bit cramped upstairs, preferred to sit at the back of the boat after exploring. The steam engine on view is amazing. Local knowldege is amazing. Highly recommend. Would love to do a longer trip next time.

We enjoyed hearing the history of the PS Canberra. The children loved when all 3 paddlesteamers blew their whistles as they passed each other. An enjoyable experience all around. Good value and well worth going.
