PS Marion provides a unique opportunity to experience the thrills and mysteries of the golden years of the river boats. Undertaking short cruises throughout the year on the Murray River departing from Mary Ann Reserve in Mannum, PS Marion also conducts overnight passenger cruises.
Gain a great perspective of Mannum as you relax and enjoy the passing river scenery and listen to the slap of the paddles. Whether we steam downstream passing spectacular river cliffs and a myriad of bird life or head upstream, this unique journey aboard the grand old lady of the river will appeal to all.
Indulge in a delicious Devonshire tea served in the dining room, or make your way up to the licensed bar on the middle deck. Observe the Engineer and Fireman as they work their magic in the art of steam engine operation. Watch in awe as the Captain and Mate manoeuvre the 200 tonne heritage vessel. Learn the history of PS Marion from interpretive panels, or better still - have a chat to one of the friendly Deckhands.
Relax, unwind and appreciate the serenity PS Marion and the Murray River have to offer.
