Know More about this tour

After pickup from centrally located Adelaide hotels, head by coach to the town of Mannum, about a 1.5-hour drive through the rolling Adelaide Hills and the Mallee outback.

Mannum is a historical town on the river, where European settlement dates back to the 1840s and the first paddle steamer on the Murray River was launched in 1852. When you arrive, board the riverboat for your 2-hour cruise.

Youll see just a small portion of Australias longest river but some of its best scenery, including stark cliffs, willow trees and the Red River Gums. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife like galahs, cockatoos and pelicans, and enjoy morning tea and lunch served on board.

Afterward, enjoy free time to explore Mannum on your own, and visit a lookout point to admire the view over the city and river. Then hop back on the coach for the return drive to Adelaide, stopping in the town of Woodside to visit Melba's Chocolate Factory in Woodside, home to some of the world's most delicious confectionery. Enjoy a snack or drink, if you wish, at the cafe (own expense) before continuing the drive to Adelaide, passing through the Chain of Ponds to Tea Tree Gully.

Your tour ends with hotel drop-off in Adelaide.

  • Well, it's nice but there's really nothing to see. I've learned there's a tour of few days which let you sleep in the wild. That could be interesting. Otherwise

  • The driver was very knowledgeable and pointed out many interesting facts about the area as we drove through the lovely Adelaide Hills. The Murray Riverboat Tour was truely beautiful - a wonderful experience and a nice lunch was served. After the cruise we spent an hour in Mannum which was not particularly interesting - this is the only negative point about an otherwise excellent tour.

  • It was the tour guides first day on the job and he came through with flying colours. He was professional, very friendly and most informative on a whole range of topics and interests and made all on board very relaxed and comfortable throughout the days journey. This was our first visit to SA and this tour gave us the opportunity to have a look from a regional aspect to that of the city of Adelaide.

  • I can really recommend this day trip from Adelaide. The riverboat cruise was great, and the lunch was good with a lot of healthy options which I appreciate. If I could change one thing it would be to skip one of the stops on the way back and spend more time on the riverboat.

  • The Murray River is a must see .. I saw it with an awesome height to the river, as it was blackout South Australia and stormy weather time ... glad I got to experience that ... love the old buildings and university ... the buildings are big highrises so nice to be able to get around without being shadowed by the heights of buildings .. everything so close, the Zoo 11 mins walk from the motel, Rundle Mall 7 mins walk from the motel ryc

  • A lovely and relaxing few hours on the Murray River with a beautiful lunch included. Would recommend it to anyone. Next time we are doing one for a few days

  • Despite the storm and the flooding around the Adelaide Hills this trip went ahead. We had an excellent tour guide and had a comfortable coach for our trip. The cruise on the Proud Mary was very enjoyable with a delicious lunch provided. The trip to Mannum and the Murray Bridge was also interesting. Due to the flooding we were unable to go to the Melba Chocolate factory but instead we were taken to look for Koalas, which was a bit of fun. All in all it was an enjoyable day.

  • Was quite disappointment with this trip. The cruise was meant to be three hours, was only just over 2hours, lunch was nice but adequate, morning tea was plain biscuits thought would be more after most had been on the bus since 8.30. Bus driver was great, gave great commentary and knowledge on the surrounding regions and river.

  • Excellent.very informative commentary.Mannum not worth 1.1/2 hour stop. Extra 1/2 hour on the river would be preferred.

  • A great day out , our driver was great and went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable and the scenery and boat ride was fabulous , our trip was to celebrate a birthday and the chef made a birthday cake which was 1st class , a highly recommended tour.
