To truly experience the magic of the Murray River, you need to get out on the water, but if you don’t have your own boat then why not jump on board with Four Knots Cruises. They offer a variety of tours including bird spotting, lunch and sunset cruises, or you can design your own tour with a group… it’s a great way to get a taste for this part of the world.
Based at Mannum Waters which is only an easy hour and a quarter away from Adelaide it’s a relaxed and informative way to see our magnificent Murray River with is unique birdlife, flora and fauna.
The Bird Watching Tour gives guests the rare chance to see both native Whistling and Black kites up close. They live on opposite sides of the river and are very territorial. If you’ve spent any time on the river you’d be familiar with these magnificent birds of prey, as we’re lucky enough to have them nest all along the Murray – and to see so many of them, and so close, is a real treat.
Four Knots Cruises operates the ‘MV Jester’ which is licensed to carry up to 40 passengers. Refreshments are provided as you cruise and take in the tranquility of the Murray. Take our tip – just remember to pack your camera!
