With its rich history and incredible natural beauty – The Murray River has long been a favourite holiday destination for South Australians. A two or five day cruise on board the award-winning Proud Mary is the perfect way to see all its wonders.

As you cruise along in comfort, River Gums and Willows line the banks of this famous river and provide a perfect safe haven for birds and wildlife. Would you believe there are over 300 species of birds?

While you’re welcome to just sit on deck and watch the world go by there are also plenty of on-shore activities to choose from. Choices include – exploring the river’s secluded lagoons and inlets, guided nature walks, or exploring ancient Aboriginal sites.

Having worked up a hunger, the food on board is an absolute highlight. Using seasonal South Australian produce, the talented resident chefs create both European and modern Australian dishes.

Come nightfall – you can’t beat a bush Barbie … and live entertainment!

When it’s time to rest – the Proud Mary boasts 18 cabins that have recently been refurbished. Beautifully decorated in neutral, calming tones they all boast river views and private ensuites.

Unlike some of the mega cruise ships of today the award-winning Proud Mary never feels crowded but intimate and welcoming. They will even customise an itinerary for you and offer a door-to-door service!
