Friday: Mid-afternoon the PS Murray Princess departs historic Mannum, birthplace of the Murray River trade and communication, and heads upriver while you enjoy a Welcome Dinner. As we cruise under floodlight to the overnight mooring at Caurnamont you may see nocturnal wildlife on the riverbank. Watch for kangaroos, hairy- nosed wombats, tortoises, egrets and many other species. Murray Princess's on-board entertainer provides music for the night owls.

Saturday: Daybreak and time for the keen photographers to be out to capture the special light and the morning movement of wildlife. Prolific birdlife includes pelicans, wrens and swans. This morning, your discovery vessel awaits for a wildlife tour. Travelling in small, personalised groups, we explore the maze of the river and the birdlife is amazing. Watch for darters, herons and egrets feeding along the river’s muddy edges.
For those who choose to stay on-board, you may wish to partake in a game of bocce or compete in the fishing challenge before we cruise upriver to Swan Reach and Sugar Shack Conservation Park. After dinner, enjoy being entertained by talented crew.

Sunday: Continue cruising upriver this morning as we enjoy breakfast and pass through one of 13 locks which maintain the flow and levels of water. Arrive at the township of Blanchetown where we will be transferred by coach to the Riverland town of Waikerie. Enjoy some free time here before travelling to Banrock Station Wine and Wetland Centre near Kingston-On-Murray. Here we will enjoy a delicious buffet lunch followed by a DVD presentation and wine tastings.
Mid-afternoon, we travel to Cadell where the PS Murray Princess will be waiting. This evening we will secure the vessel at Wilson’s Sandbar and after dinner, enjoy the on-board entertainment.

Monday: After breakfast, join the First Officer for a talk in the Sturt Dining Room as we continue cruising upriver to Qualco. From here, the Captain will turn the vessel around and begin the cruise downriver. Following lunch, we arrive at Caudo Vineyard where we will enjoy cellar door tastings and a tour of the gardens & orchards. This evening we secure the vessel at Morgan where we will enjoy dinner.

Tuesday: During the 1800’s, Morgan was the home port of hundreds of paddle steamers which carried cargo and passengers up the Murray-Darling River system. This morning we will hop ashore to see this historic town. The restored wharf precinct captures the early river trading days and the town’s museums bring to life the stories of the paddle steamer era. Back on board, we continue cruising downriver.
This afternoon we moor opposite to the township of Blanchetown for overnight anchorage. As the last rays of sun fade, we join a guided tour of Burk Salter Boutique Winery and enjoy wine tasting at the cellar door, which is fitted out with beautiful red gum wood bars. After dinner, join us for all the fun and excitement, and participate in “Murray River Cup".

Wednesday: After breakfast cruise to picturesque Swan Reach. The town was first settled in the 1850s and was originally the largest of five sheep and cattle stations in the area and is now home to native flower and fruit growers. The original Swan Reach homestead is now the Swan Reach Hotel where you can enjoy an ale or cappuccino overlooking the Murray River (additional cost). Join the guided walking tour and visit the Swan Reach Museum (Gold coin donation at entry). Cruise downriver after lunch and take in the tranquillity as the landscape slides by or enjoy a lifestyle and info-cruising presentation.
When we arrive at Sunnydale, it’s all ashore for the Woolshed Show as we recreate typical Australian woolshed history. Later we visit the Native Wildlife Shelter where some of South Australia’s most interesting native animals are cared for. And then of course, there is the great Aussie Barbecue – cooked and served in a bush setting on the banks of the mighty Murray River. An optional Nocturnal tour by tractor and cart is available after dinner (additional cost).

Thursday: After an optional Bush Tucker Breakfast (additional cost) or a bush walk with the Captain, we slowly cruise downriver past magnificent cliffs scoured by the river over millions of years. We reach Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal Reserve, one of Australia’s most significant archaeological sites, for a step back in time – tens of thousands of years – for a guided boardwalk tour to view ancient rock carvings and to learn about aboriginal history in the area.
We return to the vessel to cruise downriver to Younghusband. Along the way, adventure seekers can also take a speedboat ride. Tonight the Captain and his officers host a spectacular Farewell Captain’s Buffet Dinner. Dress up and dance, if you wish.

Friday: We leave Younghusband and head back to Mannum. After breakfast we reluctantly say farewell as we arrive at the Mannum Wharf.
