Enjoy your visit to Mannum, Murray River’s playground close to Adelaide
Set on the broad reaches of the Lower Murray, Mannum is accessible via the South Eastern Freeway from Adelaide or the scenic route through Gumeracha and Birdwood. Visit our historic Mannum Dock Museum, take a historic walk and learn more about how we became the birthplace of the paddle steamer in the Murray-Darling Basin.
Mannum is a river destination with something for everyone, whether it’s fossiking for fossils, river scenery, or activities such as houseboating or canoeing. You can also take a relaxing trip along the river on the original paddle steamer the PS Marion. Other overnight cruise boats available are the Murray Princess, Four Knots Murray River Cruises and Proud Mary (depart Murray Bridge). Shorter day trips with an eco-tourism focus are available.
