83S - River Murray Day Tour
Tour the Adelaide Hills passing Verdun and the town of Bridgewater with its mill and waterwheel.
Cruise the vast waters of the River Murray on a majestic riverboat. Rugged cliffs, River Red gums and willows border the river and bird life abounds. Sweet biscuits with tea/coffee will be served on board as you hear stories of the river.
The environment changes from green rolling hills to arid mallee outback country of the Murraylands. Mannum was the birthplace of the River Murray paddle steamers and the gateway to the harsh inland of Australia. Enjoy a buffet lunch on the riverboat as well and then take a walk around Mannum after the cruise. Perhaps a look at the fully restored 100 year old PS Marion.
Operates: Monday and Friday, 9.15am to 5.15pm from the Adelaide Central Bus Station, 85 Franklin Street, Adelaide/your hotel by arrangement.
