Murray River Cruises

The Murray River is to Australia what the Nile River is to Egypt: a great and ancient river system that has shaped the past and the present and will continue into the future as a national icon. This truly iconic Australian region has natural wonders and welcoming communities that will ensure your trip is both memorable and special. The Murray River is dotted with historic towns. When you need a break from houseboating, fishing, canoeing, swimming or water skiing, step ashore to enjoy some great country hospitality.

There`s no better way to see the Murray River and a slice of the hauntingly beautiful and dramatic Australian outback, it`s unique flora and fauna, and the rich legacy of old riverside ports and indigenous culture close up than to drift unhurried and quietly under the power of the paddle-wheeler PS Murray Princess. The PS Murray Princess is a true inland paddlewheeler built for the Murray River. Catering to just 120 passengers, it brings the unique advantages of small ship cruising to the remarkable setting of Australia`s outback.
