Overview

Boating

Hire your own boat and channel your inner sailor or climb aboard a historic paddle steamer and relive the glory days of the pioneer era. Take in the rugged natural surroundings, explore riverbank towns steeped in history, and be recharged by the river's natural beauty.

Gettin' steamed up

Step back in time onboard a historic nineteenth century paddle steamer at Echuca, Mildura or Swan Hill. Watch the boiler being stoked, listen out for the distinctive steam whistle and imagine life as a pioneer trader.

Sign up for a short day cruise on the M.V. Mary Ann or the P.S. Emmylou or spend a night or two drifting down the river on the P.S Emmylou. Get the quintessential Murray experience aboard the P.S. Rothbury and cruise to Trentham Estate Winery, or head to Mildura to ride the P.S. Melbourne, one of the few remaining steam vessels still carrying passengers.

A houseboat getaway

Navigate the river at your own pace onboard a houseboat. Stop by at the restaurants, wineries and golf courses that line the banks and dock at different parts of the river each night. For the inexperienced, full instruction is given on boat operation and mooring – all you need to qualify is a current driver's licence. And you will not be challenged by changing tides – water levels in the river remain constant.
