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 onboard, 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, 9 am and 2.30 pm with a 2-hour cruise on Sunday starting at 2 pm. Cruises depart from Kidman’s Camp Caravan Park, during visitors season.

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