|Start||Adelaide @ 09.15 am|

Travel through rolling hills and Mallee outback to the mighty Murray River bringing watered life to a thirsty land - a land now rich in green vineyards, golden citrus orchards and prosperous rural communities. Mannum - the birthplace of the River Murray Paddlesteamers. Mannum - the Murray River gateway to the harsh empty inland of Australia, still reeking with our historic past - the bawdy days of the riverboat men toiling up river in the blazing sun.
