Here it’s about the stories – the ones that are centuries old and the ones that are yet to come. Along the Murray River Road you’ll learn that life starts here with the flick of Ponde’s tail and gives birth to abundant wildlife, fertile plains that have fed generations and provided homes for people far and wide.
Stop by one of the many Aboriginal Cultural Centres or tour through ancient sacred sites like the ones at Mungo National Park and you’ll be seriously gobsmacked by this legendary history.
Not only are the waterways significant to Aboriginal people, they played a vital role in European settlement too. Historic sites are still in use today with ports and paddlesteamers, river barges, mills, blacksmiths and old school farming equipment ready to be explored on your Murray River Road adventure.
Hit the road with experiences that plunge you deep into Aboriginal culture and Dreaming stories. Or else, discover the tales featuring European settlers, bushrangers, horse thieves, drunks (no, not you), poets, singers (again, not you), aviators and loveable rogues. All in all, you have one heck of a drive ahead of you.
Driving the Murray River Road you’ll soak in thousands of years of history and culture and learn just how significant the Murray and surrounding lands are to the world’s oldest civilization.
