Become a part of the legend of the Murray River region. With human occupation flowing back 40,000 years, and a rich recent history of bushrangers and explorers, the Murray River region is waiting for you to dive into it.
As the world's 3rd longest navigable river, the Murray River offers a unique voyage of discovery that is quintessentially Australian.
Eat from the food bowl of Victoria while you laze away an afternoon on the gracious deck of a paddlesteamer. Or slide into high gear on your own houseboat, go for a water-ski, kayak or cycle. Whether you’re a fast-paced adventurer or a laidback meanderer, the Murray River region will leave you invigorated, refreshed and coming back for more.
A spot steeped in Australian legend, the Murray River region is waiting for you to create your own story along its banks. Once you’ve taken a road trip around the heritage sites and museums, weave your way through the scenic towns and villages of the Murray, cast off alongside wide sandy beaches for a spot of fishing, canoe or sail its lakes and waterways or tee off at one of the many championship golf courses. Round off your days with wine from the vineyards of the region’s rich producers.
The Murray River region holds a unique spread of truly-Australian experiences, dotted over diverse towns. From the outback-edge oasis of Mildura, plunge into the sandy hills of the Mungo National Park and take in some of Australia’s most significant Aboriginal sites, or launch into a hot air balloon and cruise over verdant citrus groves and lush green riverbanks. Take an energising hike on the many walking trails around the scenic Kings Billabong and the spectacular Pink Lakes in the Murray Sunset National Park or walk in the footsteps of our forefathers along the Camel Pad Track in the picturesque Hattah - Kulkyne National Park.
Travel downstream to explore Australia's largest inland island in
Gunbower Island State Park near Koondrook or paddle through the lush
wetlands of the heritage listed Barmah National Park and Murray Valley
National Park and immerse yourself within the world's largest stand of
River Red Gums.
If a beautifully-crafted wine matched with quality produce is more your flight of fancy, go day tripping around the many wineries and farm gates dotted around the region. You’ll become better acquainted with rich reds and signature Muscat's, often presented by fourth and fifth generation winemakers, and the array of fresh produce that will tantalise your tastebuds and leave you wanting more. End your day on a culinary high note at one of the area’s celebrated spots to sample local produce presented to perfection in line with slow food principles.
