Travel along the mighty Murray River, the border between Victoria and New South Wales, and discover historic towns, national parks and native wildlife every step of the way. Soak up the endless sunshine, both on an off the water. Hear Dreamtime stories, learn about the lives of the early pioneers, and feast on the region's bountiful produce, fine foods and boutique wines.
The great outdoors
With its Mediterranean climate and winding waterways, the Murray region is a ready-made outdoor playground. From water-skiing, bushwalking, fishing and sailing to horse riding, hiking and golf, there's no end of fun to be had.
Treat the kids to a fishing trip in a canoe, ride on horseback through stands of river red gums in Barmah National Park, or get a fresh perspective on a scenic balloon flight at dawn. Twitchers will enjoy Gunbower Island State Forest for its abundant birdlife, while the striking desert scenes of Mungo National Park and the pink lakes of Murray Sunset National Park are a must for nature lovers.
Good morning captain
Why wait around when you can travel at your own pace? Captain your own houseboat and float from town to town, sampling wine, fresh fruit and fine cuisine along the way. Want to let someone else do the work? Get a glimpse of the region's history by taking a ride on one of the authentic paddle steamers built in the late 1800s.
