Join us as we depart Adelaide’s suburbs travelling through the picturesque Adelaide Hills en route to Australia’s biggest river – The Mighty River Murray.

First stop in the Adelaide Hills is at Mount Lofty Summit to view the stunning sights of the city of Adelaide (a great photo opportunity). This stop will be dependent on climatic conditions at the time and on occasions may be changed to the return journey. Your experienced tour guide will make that judgement on the day.

We travel to the river township of Murray Bridge to board the Paddle Wheeler ‘Captain Proud’ and depart for our three hour cruise, relax on board as our Captain provides an interesting commentary on the river system including some Aboriginal folklore.

While you journey on the river, relax and enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the surroundings and indulge in a two-course lunch (choice of two mains, choice of two desserts), tea and coffee. Special dietary requirements can be catered for.

Departing the Murray we will visit the Willow Point Winery for tasting. Willow Point Winery is strategically located along the River Murray approximately seven kilometres south of Murray Bridge. Great tastings and affordable wines for your selection.
