Welcome to the Mannum Dock Discovery Centre, PS Marion and the Mannum Visitor Information Centre

Mannum Dock Discovery Centre 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 Discovery Centre, 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.

CRUISES POSTPONED

Current cruises of the PS Marion and PW Mayflower are postponed currently due to rising Murray River and will resume in 2023. Please check this website and Facebook pages for up to date information when cruises will resume. Thank you for your understanding.

SAVE OUR RANDELL DRY DOCK

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 or make a donation direct to Mannum Dock Discovery Centre Board BSB 105 085 Account 0029653140 Ref: Save our Dry Dock (your name).

All donations are tax deductible and for further information contact the Mannum Dock Discovery Centre (08) 8569 2733. If you would like to know more about the history of the Dry Dock: History of Randell Dry Dock
