We enjoyed this trip even more than expected. There is something wonderful about chugging down the river under steam and it gives you a feeling for the history of the area. At the moment P.S. Melbourne runs from Sunday to Thursday, so choose these days...More

A relaxing and informative paddle steamer tour of a section of the Murray River, which included a trip through Lock 11. Instead of just viewing the Murray from a bridge as you pass over it, you should take a paddle steamer trip. This one allows...More

We had a lovely cruise up the Murray. Very interesting going through Lock 11. Captain gave a very interesting talk along the way. Beautiful parklands around the wharf to have a picnic before or after the trip.

Staff have no pr at all. Commentary didn't excite anyone. Luckily locals on board spoke to overseas people about the unique happenings on the river over the years. Where are the visitor information people ..they should be selling this fantastic City?
