ACCOMMODATION

MEALS

Day 1

(RD, Motel) Landing in Adelaide we head up through the Barossa Valley into the top reaches of the South Australian Murray River to Barmera on Lake Bonney.

Day 2

(CB, PD, Motel) A late start and a relaxing day enjoying the sights, tastes and produce of the riverlands. Visit the Olivewood Estate, originally designed as a Canadian log cabin for the Chaffey brothers from Canada, who established the irrigation and fruit growing area of Renmark. The estate was presented as a showpiece to induce others to join the scheme. The property remains a working orangery and the orchard is fully operational, including its famous olive trees. The buildings includes old photographs, cameras, river charts, plus equipment used in the fruit industry. An afternoon visit to Ruston’s Roses, more than 50,000 plants and 4,000 varieties, making the collection one of the largest, most diverse and important in the world. Return to Barmera for a BBQ dinner on the lake. Note: Olivewood and Ruston’s included.

Day 3

(CB, RD, Motel) We head south along the Karooda Highway leaving the river near Loxton and re-joining it at Murray Bridge. After lunch we visit the Monarto Zoological Park, an open-range animal sanctuary that is administered by the Royal Zoological Society of South Australia, along with the Adelaide Zoo. It is great to see these large wild animals in the wide expanses of an open plain zoo. Overnight in Strathalbyn. Note: Monarto Zoological Park included.

Day 4

(CB, RD, Motel) We travel south along the Fleurieu Peninsula to Victor Harbor. A visit to the South Australian Whale Centre on Encounter Bay before making our way to Cape Jervis to board the Ferry to Kangaroo Island. Landing at Penneshaw we settle into the motel in Kingscote. Note: Whale Centre included.

Day 5

(CB, Motel) Full tour of Kangaroo Island, this soldier settlement island has some interesting industries in the middle with amazing wildlife and scenery along the edge. We visit the Sea Lions at Seal Bay. Later we head to the far South West of the island to the Flinders Chase National Park to view Remarkable Rocks & Admirals Arch. There are many nice places for
dinner in Kingscote. Note: Seal Bay and National Park entry included.

Day 6

(CB, MD, Murray Princess) Returning to the mainland and up to the pretty town of Mannum to board the Murray Princess. We depart downriver while you enjoy a Welcome Dinner. As we cruise under floodlight to our overnight mooring at Mundurra, you may see nocturnal wildlife on the riverbank.

Day 7

(FB, PL, MD, Murray Princess) After a hearty breakfast a guided tour of Murray Bridge’s historic landmarks and local attractions, back on board the Murray Princess in time for lunch. We continue cruising upriver with a brief stop-over in Mannum before mooring at Salt Bush Flat; you will have the opportunity to inspect the wheelhouse with the Captain. After dinner, enjoy being entertained by our talented crew.

Day 8

(FB, MD, Murray Princess) All ashore for the guided nature walk where our guide will share the secrets of the local flora and fauna. Later the PS Murray Princess departs for the big river gorges and 90m cliffs of the upper river. Mid-morning, join us in the Sturt Dining Room for a special presentation on the bounty of food and wine produced in the riverlands. Afternoon our 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.

Day 9

(CB, Motel) We head back to Mannum and after breakfast, we alight at the Mannum Wharf. Back into the coach we have a quick visit to intricately German influenced Hahndorf before heading down to Adelaide Airport to return home after a great tour.
