    South Australia | Murray River Cruise - PS Murray Princess
    Regular departures throughout the year
    The might Murray River spans three states and is the world's 3rd longest navigable river, after the Nile and the Amazon. Running a total of 2,520 kilometres from its source in the Upper Murray and the Kosciusko National Park, join the PS Murray Princess from her base in Mannum, South Australia.

    Peacefully cruise this section up and down stream, depending on the itinerary as you visit a selection of locations that showcase the natural beauty, wildlife, history and culture of the Murray River.

    Comfortable staterooms, attentive crew and delicious locally sourced food bring together a truly unique and relaxing holiday.

    Join fellow travellers for evening entertainment, or savour the scenery from the balcony as the world floats by.

    I look forward to discussing the various itinerary options for cruise only, along with additional days in South Australia to visit Kangaroo Island and time in Adelaide and beyond, if time permits.

    With all the character and charm of yesteryear, the PS Murray Princess is an authentic paddlewheeler built to cruise the mighty Murray River. The southern hemisphere’s largest inland paddlewheeler is propelled by a stern wheel that you can view through the double storey lounge window. It’s a real taste of bygone days, with the elegance and convenience you’d expect today.


    The PS Murray Princess has 60 cabins and staterooms each with private bathroom ensuite, electric blankets, soap, shampoo, hairdryers, towels and daily servicing. Each cabin is approximately 12sq metres. Four of the outside cabins and their ensuite bathrooms are wheelchair accessible. Two cabins located on Randell Deck are opposite the lift for easy access to the dining and lounge decks.Relaxing in one of the two lounges, with spectacular scenery views
