Family Fun near the Murray 

While the water is the main game, there’s lots to interest kids (and grown-ups too) in the many towns near the water.
Many of the region's historical museums have exhibits of interest for the whole family, but a must see is the Pioneer Museum in Swan Hill. Kids love the old-time atmosphere; costumed characters, lolly shop and vintage car rids.
 
Apart from the natural appeal of the river, there are plenty of other family attractions. If the kids just want to play, most towns have parks with free playgrounds and barbecues, and larger towns have swimming pools, cinemas, ten-pin bowling and skate parks. Weekend markets are fun for the whole family to poke around in, and libraries and galleries often have school holiday programs.
 
Family-friendly accommodation is available throughout the region, from caravan parks to houseboats, motels to resorts. Whether you’re here for a weekend or a longer holiday, the Murray is tailor-made for families. The kids will love it!
