Step aboard the P.W. Mayflower for an afternoon on the River Murray with Rockford Wines. This pioneer 135-year-old wooden paddle wheeler was in severe disrepair when Pam O'Donnell and Robert O'Callaghan purchased and donated her to the Mannum Dock Museum. Five years and thousands of volunteer hours have seen her now restored to her heritage best. This is Rockford's first opportunity to invite you on board. You'll cruise downstream from Mannum for around 45 minutes before disembarking for a riverside campfire lunch, prepared by Rockford chef Sandor Palmai and enjoyed with some favourite current release and Museum Cellar wines. As the shadows grow longer, you'll gently paddle back upstream, returning to the Mannum Dock in the early evening.Visit website
