Explore Mannum: get back to nature on the banks of the Murray River

Relax riverside at Mannum, an idyllic town plonked on the lush banks of the Murray River just over an hour’s drive from Adelaide. Here, you can meander gently up the river on a historic paddle steamer before kicking back at one of the many pubs perched on the riverbank offering stunning views like the Pretoria Hotel and Mannum Hotel. Just minutes away, jump on a kayak and head down the river to the world-renowned Hermann Gass Bird Sanctuary where you’ll drift past river red gums while spotting a huge variety of birdlife, or chuck on your hiking boots and discover Mannum Waterfalls. Venture a little further to Palmer for awesome views of the Murray Plains framed by unique granite rocky outcrops.
