Cruising the Murray River

The modern and comfortable houseboat-style Big River Rambler makes regular two-hour cruises from the wharf, while the historic PS Industry fires up on the first Sunday of every month. It's one of the few remaining paddle steamers from the busy river trade days. The Murray River environs is best seen from the River.
