Great Murray cruise on a luxury paddle steamer
TAKE an amazing journey on the PS Murray River Queen as it cruises the majestic river.
From the prehistoric limestone cliffs with their reminders of the ancient inland sea to the Dreamtime of our earliest inhabitants; through the roaring days of the inland paddlesteamer trade, right up to the locks and weirs and irrigated vineyards of today, the only constant is the rugged beauty of the Australian bush and the bird and wildlife.
Built in 1974, PS Murray River Queen combines the charm and romance of a bygone era with all the modern comforts of today.
