Full description
Cruise in comfort aboard the Pride of the Murray. The Pride of the Murray sailed for the first time in 1924 as a barge and has since been converted to a paddle wheeler.

All children have the opportunity to steer the paddlesteamer and receive a Free Skippers Certificate. The vessel has air conditioning, is fully enclosed, offers open areas, which are perfect for group gatherings, and wide viewing windows to see the paddlewheels. Listen to the captain's commentary of the historic port and its unique paddleboat fleet. Enjoy complimentary tea, coffee with scones, jam and cream.

And after we discovered that we were transferred to a later sailing, and after asking for our money back we were on a different paddle steamer and didn’t get morning tea!

A very pleasant cruise

Although only a short one hour cruise it was lovely gliding along the Murray in an old paddle steamer The scones, jam and hot tea were an added bonus!
