Overview

Water sports

From waterskiing, wakeboarding and canoeing to paddle-steamer rides and houseboat trips, there's no better way to experience the sun-kissed Murray region than out on the water.

Fast forward

The Murray is very wide in parts, making it ideal for waterskiing. The Southern 80, Robinvale 80 and Mildura 100 pro waterskiing events draw thousands to the region annually. But anyone can give it a go. Get tips from local operators who offer professional instruction in waterskiing, wakeboarding, kneeboarding and barefooting.

Full steam ahead

For those looking to enjoy the water at a slower pace, there are plenty of options of offer. Join a paddle steamer cruise and get a glimpse into the way life was for Victoria's early pioneers. Alternatively, get the family together on a houseboat and sail the river yourself. 

Tranquil waters

The size and easy accessibility of the Murray River makes it perfect for canoeing and kayaking. Hire one or bring your own and explore the backwaters, creeks and lagoons at your own pace. Visit during winter and spring when the forests are flooded and paddle through eerie woodlands and wetlands teeming with birdlife.
