The Murray River boasts attractions and activities that will thrill and entertain adults and kids alike. Everyone likes a splash, and the region’s water parks, pools and gentle riverside beaches are sure to delight. On top of that, there’s the old fashioned fun of boat tours and paddlesteamers, bike and canoe trails, waterskiing lessons, skate parks and so much more.
Set up camp at a holiday park and the kids can run wild all day while you’re only job is to turn the pages of your book.

By the River

Idling away holiday hours on the cool banks of the Murray is living the Australian dream. Bring the family and spend time with each other as the river flows gently by.

On the River

Watersports are always a hit and there are many opportunities for boating, waterskiing, wakeboarding and cruising along the river and lakes.

Near the River

While the water is the main game, there’s lots to interest kids (and grown-ups too) in the many towns near the water.
