Family Fun on the Murray

Water sports are always a hit and there are many opportunities for boating, waterskiing, wakeboarding and cruising along the river and lakes.
Another highlight is a cruise aboard a paddlesteamer from Echuca, Swan Hill or Mildura – kids can watch the boiler being stoked and might even get to toot the whistle!
 
Canoes and kayaks can be hired in many places along the river. Swimming from the many popular river beaches on a hot day is an experience not to be missed, though care should always be taken as currents can be strong: supervision and safety are paramount at all times.
 
Fishing is also excellent in lakes and rivers throughout the region – the anticipation of hooking a Murray cod is hard to beat! Children under 18 don’t even requiring a fishing licence!
