South Australia


  • Adelaide is the international gateway to the Murray River, the Barossa Valley, Kangaroo Island and the capital of South Australia.
  • The Adelaide International Airport is only 7km from the Adelaide City (approximately 15 minutes by car).
  • We recommend the Majestic Roof Garden HotelStamford Plaza Adelaide and the Sage Hotel Adelaide in Adelaide CBD for pre and post cruise accommodation.

Murray River

  • The Murray River is one of the world's longest rivers and the catchment basin covers one third of the Australia continent across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia
  • The most spectacular cruising passage lies in South Australia where ancient river gorges and towering sandstone cliffs  meet the massive floodplains and wetlands
  • Mannum is less than 90km from Adelaide and can be accessed via the South Eastern Freeway or via the scenic Adelaide Hills
