Proud Mary

The Proud Mary is a purpose built riverboat, designed to provide a restful and relaxing haven from which you can discover the beauty and fascination of the fourth longest river system in the world. Our cruises operate 365 days a year and include all meals, river-view en-suite accommodation and daily nature-based shore excursions.

There are just 18 cabins on board the Proud Mary which ensures you receive the best of personal service yet have the opportunity to meet and make friends with fellow passengers.

The 2 and 5 night cruises gives you an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in the history and beauty of this unique part of Australia. You’ll see the River environment from a different perspective and discover amazing flora and fauna, especially nocturnal wildlife such as night herons, owls and coots.

Proud Mary cruises provide the chance to experience Australia’s greatest river in depth. You’ll be pampered with three gorgeous meals each day prepared by our team of skilled chefs. All the while you can bask in the magnificent scenery as you leisurely journey up and down this fascinating and historic waterway that is the River Murray.

And there’s plenty to see and do along the way. Our resident expert ecologist will help you explore the amazing River Murray on some of our nature-based excursions.

Abundant wildlife will be seen throughout your entire Proud Mary cruise. River gums and willows line the banks of this famous river and provide an ideal haven for birds and wildlife. Take a closer look with the aid of binoculars, not only by day but also by night, as the Proud Mary’s powerful floodlights illuminate the graceful willows and dark waters as you cruise.

Some of the informative tours include:

A journey aboard a small boat to cruise the River’s secluded lagoons and inlets, where you will view some of the 320 species of birdlife in this region and discover the intricacies of the ancient cliff face.

Reedy Creek Conservation Park – Take a fascinating guided nature walk through this beautiful setting. Discover this permanent watercourse from waterfalls, through swamps and wetlands.

Night Cruising – Be captivated by the bush at night. Spy on nocturnal wildlife as our state-of-the-art LED floodlights give you access to what’s going on in the shadows.

Coach tour of historic Mannum – Retrace the colourful history of several pioneering families and visit the “Olden days, Olden ways” museum.

Murray Aquaculture – A visit to Australia’s largest aquaculture project will provide a fascinating insight into the lifecycle of our freshwater crayfish.

Australiana Night – An amazing dinner featuring traditional bush foods such as emu, kangaroo and fresh-water crustaceans with flavours of lemon myrtle, wild bush tomatoes and quandongs. The delicious dishes are created by our resident chefs to showcase Australia’s continually evolving cuisine.

Riverbank Barbeque and Entertainment – As dusk falls, enjoy an evening around a blazing campfire. A delicious bush barbeque is prepared using local produce, including billy tea and damper, which you’ll enjoy under the stars on the golden sands of the riverbank. Later, our resident musician will provide an evening of live entertainment.
