What You Can Expect
Upon arrival in town, hop aboard the riverboat for your 2-hour cruise, which provides just a glimpse of Australia’s longest river, but it’s some of the best scenery, from willow trees to cliffs to the Red River Gums. Watch for birds like pelicans and cockatoos, and relax over morning tea and lunch.
When your cruise returns to Mannum, you have free time to walk around independently, perhaps checking out a viewpoint that provides photo ops of town and the river. Then return to your coach for the drive to the Melba's Chocolate Factory in Woodside, where you can taste some of the world's most delicious confectionary and refuel with a beverage or bite to eat, if you wish (own expense). Finally, pass by the Chain of Ponds to Tea Tree Gully on your way back to Adelaide, where your day trip ends.
Lovely cruise on the river with a very good lunch included. Well worth it.
A great day tour. Food excellent, scenery nice and staff very helpful and informative.
lovely tour of the river, great lunch, nice staff
driver was full of interesting information, he had a great sense of humour, the meal on the boat was first rate, the boat captain was pleasant [not friendly] shame, the rest of the boat crew were great, boat ride could have been longer ?.
Very enjoyable. Good commentary and great service.
Beautiful Lunch while watching the wonderful country side slide by. We were lucky and had the River Murray full of water. Would tell anyone it is a must do. Driver was the best.
fantastic day, we had more fun than what we expected
Nice day trip with knowledgeable and friendly drivers. Nice buffet lunch on boat, but the boat trip is over very quickly!
