On this road it’s about the stories – the ones that are centuries old and the ones that are yet to come.
Life starts here with the flick of Ponde’s tail and gives birth to abundant wildlife and fertile plains that have fed and housed generations. Fast-forward forty thousand years and you can check out the deadly (good) artworks, crafts, relics and sites that connect Aboriginal people to the region.
Driving the Murray River Road you’ll soak in thousands of years of history and culture and you’ll start to notice it change along the way. We’re talking over 40 Aboriginal nations in the Murray-Darling Basin each with their own unique stories, dialects, art styles and ways of life. Learn it at the hands of welcoming elders at cultural centres, galleries and museums before discovering evidence of encampments, agriculture, hunting, trade, cooking, celebrations and burial sites still seen today.
On this journey you’ll learn just how significant the Murray and surrounding lands are to the world’s oldest civilization.
