Morning to night the Murray River Road changes. You’ll need to slow down to do it right. See it in every hue, hear the different sounds, immerse yourself in your journey – you can’t do it in one day.
Go on… get a room…
Admittedly – this is where things get tricky. There’s just too many options. There’s charming homestays, secluded eco lodges, luxurious floating houseboats, independent hotels and motels right in the heart of things, the upstairs of a country pub, a tent by the water, cabins and caravans in cabin and caravan parks. Overwhelmed? We’ve not even scratched the surface yet.
Mix it up, make an adventure of it and make that special place under your sheets part of your Murray River Road story.
Enjoy colonial history central at the Echuca Wharf, and explore the region’s waterways and wineries. If you’re not on a houseboat, you’re probably at a small hotel or riverside resort or campground.
Remote enough to be it’s own world, Mildura boasts classy food and luxe lodgings, while Wentworth is a more low-key staging ground for visits to the ethereal Mungo National Park.
Artistic, diverse and bang in the middle of Australia’s food bowl, Swan Hill is just a short drive to the holiday playground of Lake Boga. Caravan parks are the crowd favourite in these parts.
Lake Mulwala is surrounded by golf resorts and budget hotels – truly something for everyone. Down the road, Corowa offers a wide range of overnight options as a stepping stone to Rutherglen wine country.
