Tour Description

Murray River Cruise

Experience the wonderful bird life of the Murray

Thursday 18th or Friday 19th March 2021
Cost: $105

Is there anything better on a sunny day than cruising the Murray River? Yes there is, when its Four Knots Cruises nature cruise! Today we’re heading across to the river town of Mannum.

Before we head out on the Murray, we are first stopping for a delicious two-course lunch at the Pretoria Hotel. Then it’s out on the river for a 90 minute cruise!

There’s nothing better than cruising the river, especially with the magnificent scenery the Murray offers. The Four Knots vessel is perfectly sized – not too large. This allows us to get up close to the scenery on the banks of the Murray, and to better see the various birds in the trees. The knowledge of our captain, Chad, adds to our enjoyment as we cruise. We are likely to see a variety of birds along the river, and a highlight will be seeing Whistling Kites and Black Kites swooping down to be fed from the boat!

We are so looking forward to this trip in March – a special chance to enjoy the scenery and bird life of the Murray! Come along and enjoy it with us!
