Scorching hot day floating down the Murray river. Great way to learn some of the history, see the lock in action and learn about the weirs. Get on early and secure a seat up the top in the shade

This is a must do when visiting a town like Mildura. We had such fantastic weather, bit of sun and a nice gentle breeze. The commentary was very informative. Amazing how many people stop to watch the paddlesteamer go through the lock.

From the moment we stepped onboard we knew we were in for a treat. The Wonderful friendly crew welcomed us. Our knowledgeable captain gave us just enough information with our boring us. Mildest gave us perfect weather and we loved paddling down the river.

We only booked the night before after finding out friends had already booked the trip. It sounded like a nice relaxing day out which we needed after driving the dusty road down from Mungo National Park. Prices are $70 for adults and $65 for seniors....More

We took the two hour morning cruise as the weather was going to be hot (35deg C ) but as we found that the boat had good air-conditioning, the afternoon cruise would probably have been just as comfortable. I would recommend this as a great...More
