Welcome to the ‘Majestic Murray River’ tour. Our starting point is Melbourne and arriving this morning under your own arrangements at the airport (please arrive prior to 11.30am), you will be met by your host and coach before making our way north to Albury. Our welcome dinner this evening at our hotel. Overnight: Quality Siesta Resort, Albury (D)

DAY 2 – MULWALA & PS Cumberoona

Today we follow the Murray Valley Highway west and our first stop is Yarrawonga, situated on Lake Mulwala. We have arranged a short cruise aboard the PS Cumberoona. We continue through Cobram to Strathmerton for a visit to Cactus Country. Following lunch in the café, our hosts will give us a talk on the garden. We’ll be amazed at the cacti from all over the world!. 2 Nights: Philadelphia Motor Inn, Echuca (B,L,D)

DAY 3 – ECHUCA & PS Pevensey

Echuca Port this morning and our guide will point out areas of interest and fill us with tales of the colourful personalities who ‘crewed’ the old river boats. After our guided tour we join the PS Pevensey. She is one of the many boats that were originally built in Echuca. Then we spend some time at the Port Discovery Centre. (B,L,D)

DAY 4 – Lake Boga & Swan Hill

Koondrook today for a visit to the only working sawmill in the region. We view the Redgum logs through the milling process. We also see the Red Gum Statue Walk that has been created by a local chainsaw carver. Our lunch stop is in Lake Boga which is home to the famous Catalina Flying Boat Museum which played an integral part in the allied defence of the South Pacific. From here we continue to Swan Hill. Following dinner we view the Heartbeat of the Murray Sound and Laser Show. This wonderful show is the first of its kind and utilises water, light, laser, sound and special effects to tell the fascinating story of the Murray River. Overnight: Swan Hill Resort (B,L,D)


Our morning is spent at the nearby Pioneer Settlement Museum, Australia’s first outdoor museum. We’ll wander through living history, as well as enjoy a cruise aboard the PS Pyap. After lunch we have a little free time before we are on our way again to Mildura for our stay. 2 Nights: Mildura Inlander Resort (B,L,D)


The first stop is our morning cruise on the PS Rothbury. Built in 1891, the PS Rothbury is one of the last ‘working’ Paddle steamers on the Murray. We then make our way to Orange World where we will enjoy a citrus tour around the picturesque property. Lunch today is at the Varapodio Olive Farm. We’ll be met by the owners who will give us a talk on their farm as well as tastings of their award-winning oils. In Wentworth we see the junction of the Darling and Murray rivers before a visit to the Old Wentworth Gaol. A visit to the gaol shows the hard lives and extreme conditions prisoners endured. (B,L,D)


We continue west to the tiny village of Paringa. It’s here we have our morning stop and take a look at the Silo Art mural and at Lock 5. Navigating the Murray River wouldn’t be possible without the series of locks and weirs that were built back in the 1920s and 1930s. We have lunch at the Renmark Club, then have a visit to Olivewood Homestead, a homestead and museum containing relics from 1887. Our final visit for the day is to Angoves Wines for a wine tasting and history talk. Angoves Wines is the largest privately owned winery in Australia. Overnight: Berri Motor Inn (B,L,D)


Loxton was first settled by people of (predominantly) German origin and the heritage is still evident today at the Loxton Historical Village. Later this morning, we make our way to Kingston-on-Murray where we visit Banrock Station Winery. We enjoy a presentation at the cellar door which of course means some wine tastings. Then on to Murray Bridge for the night. 2 Nights: Bridgeport Hotel (B,L,D)


Today the small towns of Wellington and Milang to Goolwa where the Murray River finally enters the Southern Ocean. We board the ‘Spirit of the Coorong’ for a cruise to the Mouth of the Murray River. The cruise takes us through the Goolwa Barrage, one of five constructed in the 1930s to separate the sea water from the fresh water of the river. Tonight is our farewell Dinner Cruise aboard the MV Captain Proud. (B,D)


Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and we will make our way into Adelaide and connect with your return flight home at own arrangements (flights from 12noon). (B)
