Enjoy the serenity as you cruise the mighty Murray River
In support to the inaugural "All Steamed Up" Mannum Engine and Steam Festival and in conjunction with the 20th anniversary of the recommissioning of the PS Marion, short cruises will be offered out of Arnold Park, Mannum, the home mooring of the PS Marion.

Join the PS Marion's crew aboard the heritage paddle steamer for a short cruise along the mighty Murray River, departing from Arnold Park at either 10.30am, 12:00 noon, 1:30 pm or 3:00 pm.

Gain an advantageous perspective of the river town of Mannum as you relax and enjoy the passing river scenery and listen to the slap of the paddles. This unique journey aboard the grand old lady of the river will appeal to all with spectacular river scenery and a myriad of bird life.

Indulge in a delicious Devonshire tea served in the dining room, or make your way up to the licensed bar on the middle deck.

Observe the Engineer and Fireman as they work their magic in the art of steam engine operation. Watch in awe as the Captain and Mate manoeuvre the 200 tonne heritage vessel. Learn the history of the PS Marion from interpretive panels, or better still have a chat to one of the friendly Deckhands.

Please note the the PS Marion is a heritage vessel, exempted from complying with elements of the SA Harbours and Navigation Act and passengers agree to travel on that basis. Life jackets are provided on board the Marion for emergency purposes only. If passengers require life jackets or buoyancy vests they need to provide their own.

Adults at $15 for an hour's ride, and kids under 14 are $7.50.
