PS Industry

The P.S. Industry was built in Goolwa and commissioned in January 1911 as a workboat for the SA Engineering & Water Supply Department.

During her work life, the vessel played a major role in keeping the river open for traffic by removing snags and later in the construction of locks and weirs.

The PS Industry offers both inspections and cruises.
