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 Mannum Dock Museum will be hosting the next All Steamed Up event on Saturday 21st & Sunday 22nd of November 2020 (held on a biannual basis).

The 2018 event attracted over 9000 people over the two days and exceeded all our expectations. The combination of over 60 boats on display, river cruises on the PS Industry, PS Oscar W, PS Marion and PW Mayflower over 60 engines on show and 40 blacksmiths demonstrating their craft with the replica and original Shearer Steam carriage side-by-side 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.
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.
