Technically the location is incorrect. These pics are of the Murray River but on Victoria side not NSW. This side is very beautiful and it’s so nice to walk along to this view. Gorgeous location Mildura bridge.

Hi, perhaps the best thing is if you're on Facebook that you find the Murray River Paddlesteamers group and contact them. There's plenty of advice regarding paddlesteamers. Sorry not our expertise. Hope that helps.

Hi Geoff, its best you contact Unforgettable Houseboats directly as we don't manage any of the boats or the fleet. Sorry we can't be of any assistance with this. You should have their email or phone number with your booking.
