Our Murray River Cruises are all inclusive so you really only need to bring your personal items and your sense of humour and fun.

We will not ask you to sing, dance, recite funny stories, dress up for dinner or bring fancy dress with you. But of course you may do all these if you wish.

We suggest you might like to bring:

  • A small overnight bag to carry your needs for each day/overnight stay (Please limit your luggage to about 15 kgs weight);
  • Comfortable clothes (there is no need to ‘dress’ as the cruise is very casual);
  • Comfortable walking shoes;
  • A warm jacket as the open air deck or evenings may be cool;
  • A hat and sunscreen;
  • Camera, lenses, and spare batteries;
  • Binoculars if you are a keen bird watcher.
