If you’re wondering if you can still explore the Murray River by boat while the NSW border is closed then we’ve got good news for you! While the river is ‘open’ to visitors, you need to embark and disembark on the Victorian side of the river and not set foot on NSW land during your journey.
For a true Murray River experience, don’t return home without cruising our waterways at steam-powered speed. You’ll find paddlesteamers
in Echuca, Yarrawonga, Swan Hill or Mildura ready to welcome you aboard.
Book a Café Cruise on the MV Mary Ann, to dine on apple crumble hot cakes, Szechuan pepper calamari or a Mary Ann BLT as you cruise past Echuca’s historic port from the comfort of your dining table. Extend your time on the water with a houseboat holiday, to enjoy the changing landscapes of the region morning, noon and night (ensuring you follow current government guidelines for who you can holiday with).
Combine a water activity with an active escape and explore the Murray River by oar speed at Kings Billabong in Mildura, Gunbower Creek in the Gannawarra
region (water levels will be suitable for kayaking after the middle of August) or in Lake Mulwala (launching from Yarrawonga).
