 Detailed Itinerary

SAMPLE ITINERARY: (3 Night Discovery Cruise)
Friday:
Mid-afternoon the PS Murray Princess departs historic Mannum, birthplace of the Murray River trade and communication, and
heads downriver while you enjoy a Welcome Dinner.
As we cruise under floodlight to our overnight mooring at Mundurra you may see nocturnal wildlife on the riverbank. Watch for
kangaroos, hairy-nosed wombats, tortoises, egrets, and many other species. Our on-board entertainer provides music for the
night owls.
Saturday:
In 1879 the first bridge to span the Murray River was built at Edwards Crossing, which quickly became the bustling township of
Murray Bridge. After a hearty breakfast, choose to join a guided tour of the town’s historic landmarks and local attractions or go
on a wildlife tour at Monarto Safari Park (additional cost).
Those who choose to experience Monarto Safari Park will arrive back on board the PS Murray Princess in time for lunch then join
us in the Sturt Dining Room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the Riverland.
This afternoon, we continue our journey upriver and tonight we moor at Salt Bush Flat. After dinner, enjoy being entertained by
our talented crew.
Sunday:
This morning join a guided nature walk where your guide will share the secrets of the local flora and fauna. It’s a great way to get
in a little exercise before the PS Murray Princess departs and cruises downriver.
