PV Jandra

The PV Jandra is our featured attraction for this early part of the visitor season. The Jandra was built in 2000 by the Mansell family of Bourke. The Jandra is 24m long and about 8m wide and weighs 55 tons. This commercial vessel has a capacity of 100 passengers and is often used for charters for family functions, Christmas parties and staff functions as well as for visitors. The Jandra is moored behind Kidman's Camp at North Bourke where it departs on its regular 1 hour cruise six days per week at 9am and 3pm and departs on a 2 hour Sunday cruise from 2:30pm. The Jandra is one part of the Bourke Shire's contribution to the important tourism product within the region and compliments the Old Crossley Engine at the wharf and the Back O' Bourke Exhibition Centre.
