Murray River Houseboat

Art Trip

28 March - 5 April 2019

This exciting trip begins in the picturesque and historical SA town of Mannum 

From here we will ‘creatively’ cruise our way upstream to Swan Reach approximately 90 kms. We will explore other spectacular areas on our return to Mannum before disembarking.

For artists/photographers there is a never ending panorama of worn cliffs, giant river red gums, a variety of river boats, sunsets and idyllic birdlife to capture. For non-artists/partnersthere is fishing, kayaking, fossil finding and abandoned ruins to explore on shore. We will also visit various vantage points to photograph the magnificent river scenery. We will moor each evening at specially chosen locations.
