Murray Princess Cruise Sale - Save 25%

Save 25% on Summertime Murray River Cruises

The PS Murray Princess, the only accommodated paddle-wheeler on the Murray River, is offering 25% off 3, 4 and 7 night cruises throughout Summer.

Passengers will discover the hauntingly beautiful and dramatic South Australian outback, its unique flora and fauna, the rich legacy of old riverside ports and the rivers history and culture.

The historic cruise starts with the ship itself, PS Murray Princess, a modern replica of the paddle wheelers that cruised the Murray in the 1800's. The two spacious paddlewheel lounges feature polished wood and gold trimmings, an elegant spiral staircase and spectacular two-story glass windows of the working paddle wheel.

It's then full steam down the Murray between the Blanchetown area and Murray Bridge for 280kms of incredible terrain, wildlife and Australian history and culture.

The Murray Princess cruises past towering limestone cliffs, through picturesque gorges and along riverbanks lined with mallee scrub, red gum forests and century old stone causeways.

The lowlands attract an amazing array of Australian wildlife and over 350 species of birds. Led by on-shore guides, passengers can enjoy nature walks, eco-tours and learn about the ecology of the river.

Each day features exciting day trips to historic ports, sacred Aboriginal sites, a sheep station and woolshed and a native wildlife shelter.

Visit local vineyards and sample the produce of the food and wine trail that has made the region famous and enjoy all the festivities of an Aussie-style campfire barbecue on the river bank.

Prices for the three nights Discovery Cruise start from $581 per person twin share, from $775 per person twin share for the four nights Outback Heritage Cruise and from $1197 per person twin share for the seven nights Murraylands & Wildlife Cruise.
