  • Adelaide: River Torrens Sightseeing Cruise on Iconic Boat

    1. Adelaide: River Torrens Sightseeing Cruise on Iconic Boat

    After boarding at Elder Park Landing there will be an opportunity to purchase food and beverages from the deckhand. The captain will take time to deliver a safety talk and introduce the crew before beginning commentary of the local area and wider South Australia.   Once seated, the cruise will commence by heading toward the Torrens River Weir Gate while passing the Adelaide Festival Centre, SAHMRI, and Adelaide Gaol. Enjoy 30 minutes of commentary before arriving at Adelaide Zoo where you will have the option to disembark and explore the zoo, Botanic Garden its and surrounds. The last 15 minutes of the tour will be relaxed, allowing you a great chance to ask questions, take photos with the crew, and get some advice on what to see and do once you disembark.

    The staff were very friendly, the boat clean and tidy. Drinks and snacks available. Very comfortable seats. Informative cruise about the history of Adelaide and the river Torrens.

    2. Adelaide Gaol Adults Ghost Tour & Investigation

    Be incarcerated in Australia's longest continuously operating gaol. Discover the ghost of Governor Ashton, whose body was dropped through a window, Sister Mary MacKillop's link with the Gaol and the spirit of South Australia's most sadistic killer still stalking his prey. With 45 hangings and a burial site in Murderer's Row, it's no surprise more than 12 spirits haunt the 147 year old building.  Your evening includes a ghost tour with the opportunity to make contact through paranormal investigation tools.

    Great experience. The 2 guides were very informative on past history about the goal. I was there with 3 other family members. When we had our cell lock - ins we experienced paranormal activity it was truly rather chilling. Highly recommend this tour. Thanks for the tour guys.

Had a great time, even the sceptics walked away with their minds not so convinced there is nothing out there.

Lovely river, the crew were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it.

Very leisurely way of viewing Adelaide's landmarks
