Murray River Paddle Boat Lunch Cruise and Hahndorf Tour

Embrace the peaceful magic of the Murray River and its historic glory.

Your day begins as you wind through the beautiful Adelaide Hills, heading toward The Mighty Murray - Australia’s largest river (2,530km in length), home to a variety of wildlife and stunning natural vistas.

At the township of Murray Bridge you board Captain Proud for your 3 hour cruise - a majestic Paddle Wheeler complete with period-style dining room and bar. Soak in the calm from the river, watch out for Galahs, Cockatoos and Kangaroos as your Captain provides commentary on the history of the region and river system.

While you cruise the Murray, you can enjoy a quality two course lunch and something cold from the bar.

As the afternoon winds down, kick back on the deck outside while you sail past towering cliffs of rock and sandstone, breathing in all the untamed beauty of the vast and wonderful Murray River.

    Relaxing Paddle Boat River Cruise & day out

    First things first for a totally relaxing and flexible day. Great views with the guide giving great updates of the area and of Adelaide. These included Castles, Mt Lofty House, Thorngrove Manor and the Bridgewater Mill Waterhweel. Short stop at Beerenberg Farm also. Then off to Murray Bridge and onto the Captain Proud for the lunch cruise. The captain also gave an informative commentary as we traveled along the river. After lunch,Historic German Village of Hahndorf. Plenty to offer here with Udder Delights Cheese and a Chocolate and Wine Experience at Hahndorf Hill Winery, then time to meander around the village. Overall we were giving a great relaxing day and very highly recommended.

    Afternoon Paddle Boat River Cruise & Hahndorf Tour

    Would highly recommend Ambler Adelaide Tours to anyone. Pick up and delivered back to your hotel. Small group, Roger (driver & guide) lives in the area, and trip is customised to what people would like to do or see on the way, rather than being a set tour. We did the one day trip with 3 hr cruise on the Captain Proud up the Murray River from Murray Bridge. Great lunch with a choice.

    Murray River and Hahndorf Tour

    Had a great day out on the Murray River Paddle Boat lunch cruise. The lunch was excellent! Enjoyed the commentary and the staff on board were very well informed. Would of like to have had a bit more time to explore Hahndorf. It was a lovely little town with lots to see.
