Remarkable Renmark Cruises

February 28, 2017 River Cruising No Comments Email Email

Captain Cook Cruises will operate two seven night Renmark cruises on the Murray River this year, aboard paddlewheeler, PS Murray Princess. The first Renmark cruise will depart from Mannum on Friday 01 December and the second cruise will depart from Renmark on Friday 22December, 2017.

Taking in over 420kms of the Murray River, the Renmark cruises follow in the wake of the great 19th Century pioneers, passing through five locks between Mannum and Renmark near the Victorian border.

According to Donna Gauci, General Manager of SeaLink, “This is the first time we have operated this amazing cruise since 2012 and we are thrilled to be able to offer this popular cruise once again.”

Visiting new and exciting destinations each day both Renmark cruise departures stop at Morgan where guests will learn about Australian history at its three museums; Kingston-on-Murray for a visit to the Cobdogla Irrigation and Steam Museum – home to the world’s only working Humphrey Pump; Ngaut Nguat to visit the sacred Aboriginal Conservation Park; Sunnydale where guests head ashore to see a typical Australian woolshed show and Native Wildlife Shelter and Overland Corner where guests will discover it’s many secrets dating back to the early 1800’s.

At historic Loxton guests will be treated to a special evening at the Christmas Loxton Lights Festival.  Loxton will shine with thousands of fairy lights, colourful banners and residential streets decorated with over 350 illuminated Christmas scenes, paintings and lights displays. By day step back in time at The Village and learn about the stories of the region’s early settlers, displayed in over 45 recreated buildings and exhibits along the banks of the Murray River.

The Renmark to Mannum Christmas cruise also visits Caudo Vineyard for cellar door tastings and a tour of the gardens and orchards and includes a guided tour of Overland Corner. To celebrate Christmas Day guests will experience the magic of the Murray on a tender boat ride through the Banrock Station Wetlands before enjoying Christmas festivities, a traditional Christmas lunch, a fun Christmas Carols sing-a-long and a Murray Princess Christmas Concert following a delicious dinner.

The Mannum to Renmark cruise also explores the picturesque river township of Waikerie and between Loxton and Rumpagunya adventure seekers will have the opportunity to take a scenic tender boat ride up the river or inspect the wheelhouse with the Captain.

On-board guests can sit back on the open top deck or in one of two air-conditioned paddlewheel lounges and watch the working paddle wheel through a spectacular two-story glass window while enjoying the amazing views and sunsets as the Murray Princess cruises past towering limestone cliffs and along riverbanks lined with mallee scrub and red gum forests.
