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?

We thoroughly enjoyed the PS Melbourne. Great value for money. Lovely just floating along the Murray River for a couple of hours. Going through Lock 11 was fascinating. I’d highly recommend.

Murray River Paddle Steam (PS) MELBOURNE is a great way to see the Murray River, the Mildura-Buronga foreshores, and Lock 11 - one of the rivers operational lock systems. PS MELBOURNE’s captain provides an informal commentary on the river and its rich river boat history....More

Really enjoyed our two hours on the steamer. It was relaxing and informative. It is great to see the old steam engine in full working order. At $30 great value.
