Captain Cook's Murray Winter Sale
There is no better way to discover the winter enchantment of the Murray River, secrets of Australian history and the taste sensations of the Murray's food and wine trail than on the romantic paddle-wheeler PS Murray Princess.
Enjoy the warmth of the cosy paddlewheel lounge and the amazing views it offers as the Murray Princess cruises past towering limestone cliffs, through picturesque gorges and along riverbanks lined with mallee scrub, red gum forests and century old stone causeways.
The river in winter attracts an amazing array of Australian wildlife and over 350 species of birds. Led by on-shore guides, passengers can enjoy nature walks, nocturnal eco-tours, a backwater boat tour and learn about the ecology of the river.
Each day features exciting day trips to historic ports, sacred Aboriginal sites, a sheep station and woolshed and a native wildlife shelter.
There's a food and wine trial that enables tasting at a number of vineyards and cellar doors, and in the evening, an Aussie-style campfire barbecue on the river bank.
Or stay on-board and heat up in one of two spas or saunas.
The three nights Discovery Cruise departs every Friday at 4.30pm and prices start from $775 for the first person and from $388 for the second person.
