Spirit Australia Cruises is a family owned business now into the third generation of boat building and Murray River cruising.
Our cruise programs vary from day cruises departing Goolwa, South Australia across the Murray Mouth into the Coorong National Park under the banner ‘Spirit of the Coorong’, to extended hotel accommodated cruises along the length of the Murray River between Goolwa SA and Albury NSW under the ‘Murray River Run’ banner.
We also operate a 6 day/5 nights Gippsland Lakes cruise program, in Victoria.
Unlike traditional cruise boats, Spirit Australia passengers do not stay on-board in cabins. The boats are therefore smaller, allowing access to unique untravelled waters and offering a more personalised cruising experience. Passenger accommodation is on-shore in comfortable en-suite riverside town hotels allowing time to explore a different riverside town most evenings.
We mostly cruise one way, with coach return to port of origin to maximise distance cruised and minimise duplication of scenery.
