Departs Friday 30th March 2018

Easter is celebrated in countries around the world in many different ways. Here in Australia, many Australians take advantage of the long-weekend for a short holiday.

A great way to spend your next Easter break is to take a cruise on the Murray River aboard the PS Murray Princess. Our Easter cruise departs on a Friday and returns on a Monday – the perfect long-weekend getaway! 

There’ll be a few Easter flavoured events and activities over the 3 days but mostly you’ll also get the chance to relax and enjoy the beautiful lower river land between Walker Flat and Murray Bridge and the great variety of flora and fauna. There’s also an interesting nature walk where you can get up close to the river birdlife on board the ‘Dragon-Fly’ flat bottomed boat. Not to mention the great food and entertainment throughout the cruise. What a way to spend your next Easter break!

Departing on Friday 30th March 2018, your cruise will also include...

  • Explore the township of Murray Bridge or take a tour of the historic Roundhouse.
  • Take a guided nature walk at Salt Bush Flat.
