2. Follow the Murray River
There's no better remedy to the clang and clamour of city life than time on the Murray River. Dial up the thrills with a water skiing or fishing adventure, relive the river's pioneering days on a paddlesteamer, or wind down with a sensuous massage by the water. Wills Bend offers some of the best kayaking and canoeing experiences in the world, and is a popular camping, fishing and picnicking area.
Note that some parts of the Murray River are experiencing high river levels due to recent heavy rain. Visitors can still enjoy paddle-steamer cruises, boat cruising and house boating, however it is recommended swimmers visit the local swimming pool.
