We cruise on the first Sunday of every month with additional cruises during some holiday periods, long weekends and during festivals. Cruises may be cancelled due to extreme weather conditions and may be subject to change so please confirm details.
Experience a bygone era with a scenic 90 minute cruise, cruising on the historic PS. Industry. Hear the unique sounds of the paddle wheels, the hiss of steam and see the wood fired boiler being stoked. Devonshire tea with scones cooked in a wood fired oven is served. During the cruise, passengers will see wildlife consisting of waterfowl, and even a koala or two may be seen as you pass between majestic river red gums and limestone cliffs.
Commissioned in 1911 as a work boat for S.A. Water keeping the Murray River open to traffic by removing snags and later in the construction of locks and weirs. After being retired in 1969, the PS. Industry was carefully restored by the hard work of the volunteers in 1990.
