This is a well priced great couple of hours relaxing on the water ways of South East Victoria. The skipper is friendly and very well read and informed about the area. A very nice afternoon.

We were very disappointed to travel out to the museum on a Tuesday.. only to find out it's only open Saturday's, Sunday's and Monday's.. Signage from town would have been very helpful.
