MURRAY RIVER EXPERIENCES 

It’s your choice: On the water – boating, floating and waterskiing; Next to the water – fishing, barbecuing and relaxing; Near the water – golfing, eating and exploring; Above the water – flying, skydiving and gliding. 
 
From family friendly adventures to adrenaline-fuelled action (with plenty of time for a tasty meal in between) the Murray is your Number One destination for great river experiences.
 

 

BOATING, CANOEING AND KAYAKING

For much of its length, the Murray is a slow-moving river – making it absolutely perfect for a range of boating including houseboats, pleasure craft, paddlesteamers and more.

WATERSKIING

The Murray is very wide in parts, making it ideal for waterskiing.  With pro events, lessons for beginners, and popular runs for everyone, there’s something for everyone.

 

WALK, RIDE & FLY

Whether you’re on foot, bike or horse, or you’ve left solid ground altogether, stunning natural experiences and breathtaking view await. Are you game?

 

FISHING

Fishing is one of the Murray's classic experiences, and the legendary Murray Cod, Australia's largest exclusively fresh water fish, is what most anglers are after.
