We did the 2 hour cruise on PS Melbourne today. There isn’t a lot to see along the river, although the commentary covered almost every house and building, trying to make it interesting! There were good facts and figures about the boat, about the caravan...More

We travelled up the Murray River to the Gol Gol Pub for Lunch with friends. A very pleasant, peaceful trip, in great weather. A very informative commentary from the Skipper made the journey very interesting. Altogether a great days outing!

Did a fantastic 2 hr trip on the paddle steamer Rothbury. Watching the wood burning engine was really interesting. Would recommend anyone doing the trip & enjoy a glass of champagne while taking in the sights.

This was quite a fun thing to do - went with the visiting rellies as a matter of duty, basically, but found the commentary really quite interesting and the whole trip surprisingly fun. Highly recommend it.

Very relaxing down the Murray. Kids loved it as never done this before. Nice to see all the campers having a great time.

Scorching hot day floating down the Murray river. Great way to learn some of the history, see the lock in action and learn about the weirs. Get on early and secure a seat up the top in the shade

This is a must do when visiting a town like Mildura. We had such fantastic weather, bit of sun and a nice gentle breeze. The commentary was very informative. Amazing how many people stop to watch the paddlesteamer go through the lock.

Travelled on the Rothbury on a blue sky day. Great to have indoor and outdoor options as the wind was a little cold. Informative captain kept the facts coming at a good pace and pointed out the bird life along the riverbanks. Plenty of food...More

From the moment we stepped onboard we knew we were in for a treat. The Wonderful friendly crew welcomed us. Our knowledgeable captain gave us just enough information with our boring us. Mildest gave us perfect weather and we loved paddling down the river.
