Murray River Riverboat Tour Including Lunch from Adelaide
USD 115.68
Overview
Step aboard a riverboat cruise for a tour of the Murray River, a peaceful day away from the bustle of Adelaide. On the way to Mannum, listen to informative commentary about the paddle steamer and look for shorebirds such as pelicans. Dig in to morning tea and lunch provided on the journey and then stop at Woodside's famous Melba's Chocolates factory.
What to Expect
Begin this peaceful journey on the Murray River with convenient pickup at your hotel in Adelaide. Find a seat in the comfortable coach for the 1.5-hour trip to Mannum, enjoying the scenery of the Mallee outback and the Adelaide Hills on the way. As this tour provides round-trip transportation, there's no need to worry about renting a car for a brief escape from Adelaide's city pace. 

Upon reaching Mannum, step aboard the riverboat for a journey along the Murray River, Australia’s longest. As you pass through the riverside scenery, such as willow trees, Red River Gums, and a variety of local water birds, listen to live commentary on the environment and its history. Enjoy a leisurely midmorning tea and lunch.

Back in Mannum, enjoy some time to explore independently and then hop back on the coach for a short trip to Woodside, where you can sample the wares at Melba’s Chocolates factory before returning to Adelaide, passing through the Chain of Ponds and Tea Tree Gully along the way.
