Mannum to Walker Flat

The average 4 night trip would allow you to travel from Mannum to Walker Flat and return. This is approximately a 115km round trip.

Day 1

Board houseboat at 3pm. Once settled on the instructor will take you through the boat and show you where everything is, how it works and teach you to drive it. You can then head off start your journey along the river and tie up before sunset.

Day 2

Travel to Bowhill (5.5 hours). Perhaps stop for lunch then continue travelling a short distance upstream to find a secluded mooring for the night near the spectacular sandstone cliffs. To include a Barossa Valley Winery Tour in a 4-night holiday, you would need to stay at Bowhill tonight ready to be picked up from this township at 9am the following morning.

Day 3
