The Murray River is long, wide and there’s at least 200km of navigable river for you to explore from any starting point – the only limit is time.
Each houseboat operator shows you how far you can head up or down the Murray River, and the sights you can see along the way.
Houseboats cruise along at a steady but slow pace of around 8 km/h downstream and 4 km/h upstream, so where you go depends on how much time you want to spend cruising versus exploring on dry land.
The Murray River itself is a lifeline that gives you access to thousands of things to do. Pull up at Trentham Estate Winery near Mildura or pass through Lock 11 and explore Coomealla Golf Club near Wentworth.
Around Echuca Moama, drop by Morrison’s Winery, stop for a chic brunch at Three Black Sheep, or find a riverside bank and picnic among the river red gums.
You can moor the boat just about anywhere, so if you spy a beautiful patch of river stop for a swim or simply enjoy the serenity of the place.
