Taking a Murray River cruise is one of the best ways to experience South Australia’s stunning Riverland region. Over the course of a three to seven-day cruise (depending on the cruising option you choose), you’ll be slowly and gently guided up the mighty Murray to witness the towering cliffs, active river bird life and breathtaking sunrises and sunsets this region is famous for.
The cruise allows you to get up close to the riverbank giving you a glimpse at life on the river as well as some of Australia’s most beautiful untouched landscape.
We’ve reviewed our experience on-board the PS Murray Princess and we’ve also told you what to expect, but now we want to let our pictures do the talking. As the saying goes “pictures tell a thousand words”. So we hope you enjoy these scenes from the Murray River which we think speak for themselves.
