We went to the lock to see how it works. What a wonderful invention. Really great to see it drain out and then you can see it close and fill again. Works on the hour and the half hour.

fantastic to go on a river cruise. You get to sit and relax while taking a drive up and down the river seeing all the sights. Dinner cruise is great where a meal is included and entertainment included

The Rothbury paddleboat 2hr Cruise on the Murray River through Lock 11 and back is well worth the trip. Lovely and relaxing time. Great photo experience.

Make sure you plan your visit here when the paddle boat goes through. It is worth watching the whole operation. Do that first then travel on the boat you get to here about it.

Hi Chris, I am not a hundred per cent sure the times but I will make some enquiries and get back to you ASAP. From memory I think it is around 2.00 p.m as we did the afternoon cruise.
