The Renmark Paringa Visitor Information Centre is also the home and mooring site for the famous Paddle Steamer, PS Industry.

Commissioned in 1911, The PS Industry worked for SA Water Keeping the Murray River open to traffic by removing snags and later in the construction of the locks and weirs. In 1969 the Industry came to the end of its hectic working life as retired as a Steamer and spent the next twenty years as a static museum.

In 1990 a group of volunteers formed and restoration of the PS Industry commenced, and came back to life, this time as the "Lady Mabel" in the mini TV series "River Kings". Still operated by steam, the Industry reached survey in 1995 and was recommissioned as a historic passenger vessel.
