Mannum Dock Museum acknowledges the Nganguraku people as traditional owners of this land. We aim to respect the cultural heritage, customs, beliefs and relationship to the land of all indigenous people. Mannum Dock Museum, home of the fully restored Paddle Steamer Marion, presents river history at its best. The Paddle Steamer Marion is a fully restored heritage vessel built in 1897 and is one of the last operational, heritage, steam driven, wood fired, overnight passenger carrying side paddle steamers in the world.
The heritage listed Randell Dry Dock built in 1876 is believed to be the only floating dry dock of its kind left in the world.
It now needs your help. We have started a fund raising campaign to build a shelter to protect this red gum engineering feat to ensure it will last the tests of time and be protected from the elements.
If you would like to donate towards its preservation; email firstname.lastname@example.org or make a donation direct to Mannum Dock Museum Board BSB 105 085 Account 025138740 Ref: Save our Dry Dock (your name).

2018 – The Mannum Dock Museum will be hosting the next All Steamed Up event on Saturday 17th & Sunday 18th of November 2018 and will be held on a biannual basis.
The 2016 event attracted over 7000 people over the two days and exceeded all our expectations. The combination of over 60 boats on display, river cruises on the PS Marion and PS Oscar W, over 60 engines on show and over 40 blacksmiths demonstrating their craft with Model T ford displays on Sunday created an amazing engaging experience for those who attended the event.
Check out allsteamedupfestival.com for images of the event and will be updated with information for the next festival in the near future.
