Overview

Outdoor activities

For lovers of the great outdoors, The Murray River region is a sun-kissed wonderland full of striking natural landscapes and winding waterways. With the river making its way through the heart of the region, there are countless opportunities for all kinds of watery fun, from water skiing, boating and kayaking to fishing and canoeing. There are plenty of options for landlubbers too with great bushwalking trails, renowned golf courses and cycling routes to try.

Splashing around

Spend a few relaxing days navigating 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 or try your hand at a spot of fishing. Need something a bit more strenuous? Strap on a pair of water-skis or join a white water rafting adventure.

Outback wilderness

Make your way beyond the lush, green riverbank to the vast Australian outback – the stuff of pioneer legend and the home of ancient Aboriginal Dreamtime stories. Explore the rugged terrain on foot or join a 4WD or four-wheel motorbike tour. 4WD enthusiasts will love the 354-kilometre River Red Gum Drive that takes in the Gunbower, Barmah and Murray Valley national parks. Set up camp in the wilderness and sleep under the stars, or see the stunning scenery from the air in a hot air balloon or a joy flight.

Grass is greener

Bust out the golf clubs and make the most of the region's excellent riverside golf courses – designed by some of the biggest names in the game. Tee off surrounded by beautiful natural bushland and stunning river views.
