Family activities

Share a love of the outdoors with the entire family on a Murray River adventure. With a winning combination of sunny days and flowing waterways, the region is a natural playground. Make the most of the endless sunshine by getting out on the water, hitting the local trails and exploring the rich history of the region.

Riverside ramble
Roam the rivers on a luxury houseboat or pitch a tent along one of the many glorious river beaches. Fill your days with group swims and biking expeditions, hire canoes and kayaks by the water's edge, and picnic under red gums. Let the little ones try a spot of fishing but be ready to lend a hand if the legendary Murray cod nibbles.

Pioneering spirit
Relive the days of yore with a visit to Swan Hill's Pioneer Settlement, a charming recreation of a nineteenth century port town. Cruise the streets in a vintage Dodge or horse-drawn carriage, tuck into Devonshire tea and stock up on old-fashioned boiled lollies at the General Store. For a family photo to remember, get dressed up in period garb and strike a pose.

On the move
Climb aboard an historic paddle steamer in Echuca, Swan Hill or Mildura and coast along the Murray with the sounds of native wildlife all around. Looking to delve deeper? Team up with an Indigenous guide for a tour through some of the region's ancient meeting places and sacred sites.
