Cruise Outline

A unique feature of this cruise is travelling downstream through Lock 11, which was built to bypass the weir across the river. Passengers can experience the workings of a lock as the Melbourne is lowered to the downstream level and raised again on the return journey.

An informative and comprehensive live commentary of the river and its history, fauna and flora is conducted throughout the cruise involving the public in the current beauty and history of the river and its vessels. A light lunch – sandwiches, cakes, tea/coffee and cool drinks are available to purchase on board and the vessel is fully licenced.

This cruise is currently being operated on board the Paddle Vessel Rothbury – which is no longer a steamer.
