Despite its small population of only 2,000 people, Mannum is a historical town that draws in visitors from all over Australia and the world to see the sights and stay at some of the outstanding Mannum hotels. Located on the Murray River in South Australia, Mannum was first settled in 1840 and quickly became important to the country's shipbuilding industry.
Although Mannum is no longer significant as a river port, it has become a very popular destination, especially during the summer months. In fact, the population can swell to as large as 10,000 people, making it an excellent idea to book accommodation in Mannum before arrival. Historical locations like the Mary Ann in the town's recreational park are particularly popular with guests.
One of the most exciting things to do in Mannum is spend some time out on the river. The Murray Princess is a restored paddle wheeler that takes passengers out on cruises. The town is also known for its houseboat rentals, as guests can use accommodation in Mannum as their home base while taking a boat out for the week. Remember to book rental cars in Mannum before returning to town, since transportation options may be limited.
