Step back in time and explore Mandurah’s winding waterways and the serene Murray River on board a relaxing, half-day scenic river cruise. The majestic Murray is WA’s most history-rich river. It is the longest permanent river in the Jarrah Forest and one of the few major rivers in Australia that remains undammed. Lined with quaint homes, houseboats and an array of wild flora and fauna, it is one of the Shire of Murray’s most picturesque attractions. Hosted by an expert local guide, travel on a spacious twin-level catamaran for a day-trip of delight. Take in stunning scenery, cruising as far as the Murray River Bridge (Forrest Highway). As you cruise, dine on a delicious buffet lunch and dessert. The freshly-prepared menu changes seasonally, featuring prawns, chicken, fresh salads and more in summer, with steamy classic comfort foods served in winter. A fully licensed bar is available on deck to enjoy refreshments along the way, and help yourself to complimentary tea/coffee (bring your own mug). Departing from Mandjar Bay, travel across Mandurah’s magnificent estuary. Continue past the world-renowned RAMSAR-listed Creery Wetlands, teeming with birdlife. Cross the Peel Inlet and be on the lookout for Mandurah’s famous bottlenose dolphins as they surf and play in the wake of the boat. On entering the Murray River, stop at Cooper’s Mill heritage island site for a brief, easy walking tour. This restored wind-driven mill, located on Cooleenup Island, is only accessible by boat. Explore and wander to learn the story of this historic landmark. On the return journey, cruise across the Peel Inlet and through the Port Mandurah canals, lined with luxury homes. The Murray River Lunch Cruise is a half-day experience (approx. 4.5 hours), departing regularly from central Mandurah. Bookings are essential.
