PS Marion

06 - 15 Jun 2013

This special 50th Anniversary of the PS Marion’s “last voyage” from Berri to Mannum will re-enact events from 1963, as well as a host of celebrations planned as we journey along the river. Overnight at Loxton, Cobdogla, Waikerie, Morgan, Blanchetown, Swan Reach, Big Bend, Purnong. All meals, activities, secure car parking (at Mannum), coach from Mannum to Berri, inclusive. Licenced bar available.

Join the PS Marion’s crew aboard the heritage paddle steamer. Gain an advantageous perspective of river towns as you relax and enjoy the passing river scenery and listen to the slap of the paddles. This truly unique journey aboard the grand old lady of the river will appeal to all.

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. Lean the history of PS Marion from interpretive panels, or better still – have a chat to one of the friendly Deckhands.

Relax, unwind and appreciate the serenity PS Marion and the Murray River have to offer.
