Indulge in a long weekend where you’ll discover the beautiful lower riverlands,
between Walker Flat and Murray Bridge aboard the paddlewheeler PS Murray
Princess. You’ll cruise through spectacular riverlands and enjoy the great variety of flora and fauna. You’ll take a nature walk, get up close to the river birdlife on board the ‘Dragon-Fly’ flat-bottomed boat, visit the township of Murray Bridge and learn about the food and wine of this famous region.
Day 1 – FRIDAY 6 NOVEMBER 2020
Meet your KTG Tours Hostess at Sydney Airport ready to board your 8:40am flight.* On arrival at Adelaide Airport, we board our awaiting coach for an Adelaide City Sights tour then stop at Mt Lofty Summit to admire the spectacular views over the city and enjoy some lunch. Continuing on we arrive in historic Mannum ready to board the PS Murray Princess. Relax and enjoy a Welcome Dinner as we cruise downriver under floodlight to our overnight mooring at Mundurra. Watch as you may see nocturnal wildlife on the riverbank like kangaroos, hairy-nosed wombats, tortoises, egrets and many other species. Our on-board entertainer provides music for the night owls.
Day 2 – SATURDAY 7 NOVEMBER 2020
In 1879 the first bridge to span the Murray River was built at Edwards Crossing, which quickly became the bustling township of Murray Bridge. After a hearty breakfast, choose to join a guided tour of the town’s historic landmarks and local attractions or go on a wildlife tour at Monarto Zoo (additional cost). Those who choose to experience Monarto Zoo will arrive back on board the Murray Princess in time for lunch then join us in the Sturt Dining Room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the Riverland. This afternoon, we continue our journey upriver and tonight we moor at Salt Bush Flat. After dinner, enjoy being entertained by our talented crew.
Day 3 – SUNDAY 8 NOVEMBER 2020
All ashore for the guided nature walk where our guide will share the secrets of the local flora and fauna. It’s a great way to get in a little exercise before the PS Murray Princess departs and cruises downriver. Near Fromms Landing, we turn and head downriver to River View Lodge (near Piggy Flat / Coolcha) where your discovery vessel awaits for a wildlife tour. Travelling in small, personalised groups, we explore the maze of the river and the birdlife is amazing. Watch for darters, herons and egrets feeding along the river’s muddy edges. The afternoon offers a choice of bocce or fishing challenges
before joining the Captain and Officers for the Farewell Dinner and Dance.
Day 4 – MONDAY 9 NOVEMBER 2020
After breakfast, we reluctantly say farewell to the Murray Princess as we arrive back at the Mannum Wharf. We board our waiting coach and travel to the charming village of Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills, classified as Australia’s oldest surviving German settlement with some free time followed by a delicious lunch at The German Arms. We are then transferred to Adelaide Airport for our flight arriving back in Sydney at 5:25pm.*
