Lonely Planet review
There are many reminders of the time when the big paddle-wheelers were Bourke's lifeline. The impressive three-tiered wharf at the northern end of Sturt St is a faithful reconstruction of the original built in 1897 and, on the river, the PV Jandra is a replica of an 1895 paddle-wheeler. The one-hour cruise on the Jandra lets you experience the legendary Darling, hear about the local history and see the great range of river birds, like the blue-eyed corellas and pelicans, and their babies.
