Hire one of our houseboats and cruise the Murray River

The average 4 night trip would allow you to travel from Mannum to Walker Flat and return. This is approximately a 115km round trip.

Day One
Board houseboat at 3pm. Once settled on the instructor will take you through the boat and show you where everything is, how it works and teach you to drive it. You can then head off start your journey along the river and tie up before sunset.

Day Two
Travel to Bowhill (5.5 hours). Perhaps stop for lunch then continue travelling a short distance upstream to find a secluded mooring for the night near the spectacular sandstone cliffs.

To include a Barossa Valley Winery tour in a 4 night holiday, you would need to stay at Bowhill tonight ready to be picked up from this township at 9am the following morning.

Day Three
Travel from Bowhill to Walker Flat (4 hours). Perhaps moor at the small township and walk up to the lookout for magnificent panoramic views of the river. You could enjoy a picnic lunch on the picturesque lawned area then travel back downstream to find a mooring for the night.

Day Four
Continue to travel downstream to past Bowhill and Younghusband before mooring around the township of Mannum. For your last night you could enjoy a meal at one of mannum's local hotels.

Day Five
Return to the marina to disembark by 9:30am.
