There was a major problem when I phoned to reconfirm with the local contact -they had never heard of me or of Viator, so we were not booked on the cruise. Luckily space was available and they accepted my documents on the day, but it was a very stressful experience bearing in mind that our visit to Mildura was especially for this trip.
The cruise itself on the Murray river was relaxing, drifting slowly along, admiring the scenery and listening to the Captain's interesting commentary. The visit to the Trentham Wine Estate was disappointing-the tour was poor and at the wine tasting they were really only interested in sales. The boat crew provided an adequate barbecue lunch and as it was a beautiful sunny day it was pleasant eating on the lawns overlooking the river.
