To celebrate Floating Melodies’ fifth anniversary, we have hand-picked an exclusive cruise down the River Torrens/Karrawirra Pari. Boarding Popeye at Elder Park Popeye Dock, you will collect your welcome drink and enjoy your entree as we travel to the delicate sounds of opera singers, Karina Bligh and Charlotte Kelso. Karina performed on the very first Floating Melodies back in 2013 so it is a pleasure to have her on board again.
As we approach the weir you will step off the Popeye and onto a floating pavilion serving innovative Australian cuisine using the best of local and indigenous ingredients, Red Ochre. Here you will enjoy this cruise guest only dinner that includes your second included beverage.
As the sun goes down, we again board the Popeye to while away some time along the river, taking in the city lights and more live music heading back around to the Elder Park Dock. Perched on the banks, with uninterrupted views of the Adelaide Riverbank, we find the Neon Bar and our final stop for dessert. With a more contemporary flavour, Rohan Watts will be entertaining you whilst you chat with your new found friends from the cruise.
