Outdoor Activities

The Murray River winds its way through the heart of the region, providing countless opportunities for all kinds of outdoor activities including, watersports, bushwalking, outback adventures and much more.

Spend relaxing days exploring the river in a houseboat, take a ride in a historic paddle steamer or explore the reserves and wetlands in a canoe. Find a secluded spot on a river beach to soak up some sun, enjoy a picnic lunch then try a spot of fishing. Need something a bit more strenuous? Strap on a pair of waterskis or join a white water rafting adventure.
