The Paddle Vessel Jandra

Cruises, Sailing and Water Tours

Experience the beautiful Darling River aboard the majestic Jandra Paddle Vessel. Enjoy one of the relaxing daily cruises, or book a private charter for your special event. Once on board, the Captain will inform and entertain you with a delightful commentary on river life, flora, fauna and the history of the riverboat era.

The original Jandra was a steam paddle boat, built in Mannum, South Australia in 1894 for Arthur Senior of Bourke. Our modern paddle vessel was built by Russell Mansell and his family and commissioned in 2000; the first paddle boat to operate on the Darling River in over 60 years.

There are two one hour cruises daily Monday to Saturday with a two hour cruise on Sunday. Cruises depart from Kidman’s Camp Caravan Park, during visitors season.

Book your tickets now at the Back O’ Bourke Information and Exhibition Centre.
