Earlier this year I was privileged to cruise the Murray River aboard the beautiful paddle wheeler, the Murray Princess.
I am really looking forward to going again, on 9th March 2015 for 4 nights. And the great news is, there are still some cabins available!
The cruise is a great blend of food, wine, fun and of course the stunning scenery. We’ll depart from Mannum, and enjoy a three course menu designed by myself and prepared by the wonderful chefs on board. I will give a cooking demo on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday – and there is always enough for tastings for everyone and matching complementary wine.
We will visit Burke Salter winery, visit Swan Reach township and in one of my personal favourite parts of the tour, visit Ngaut Ngaut Aboriginal reserve, one of the most significant Aboriginal sites in Australia.
One night dinner is an on-shore bush barbecue, with the opportunity to take a nocturnal wildlife-spotting tractor ride.
If you come along you’ll never forget the towering cliffs, the millions of birds, or the serenity of the river. One of the best parts of the day is a glass of wine on the upper deck, watching the sun go down and relaxing completely.
I hope you’ll join me for what really is unique and special holiday.
