Water adventures

Canoeing

Our still waters deliver the perfect setting to escape civilisation and enjoy a refreshing aquatic-based experience. Opt for a canoe and venture off land, travelling along the mighty Murray or one of its many tributaries that span the region.

If a guided trail is more your style, try the Edward River Canoe Trail and savour the natural beauty of this unique river system and the surrounding river red gum forests. Canoes are available for hire in Echuca Moama, Barham and Deniliquin.

Stand up paddle boarding (SUP)

This fun water-based activity is fast becoming the ultimate aquatic adventure and our river country offers the ideal location to start or step-up your paddle boarding game! All you need is a body of water and your equipment. No waves are required, making our riverside destination the perfect SUP environment. Find your happy place and enjoy spectacular views of the water and surrounding forest from your paddleboard.

Water skiing

The beautiful, protected waters of the Murray near Moama and Picnic Point, near Mathoura are the perfect conditions for water skiers. The 15 hectare Moulamein Lake is also well suited to water skiing. Whether you’re an absolute beginner or a seasoned expert, this is a fun and active way to spend the day. If you want to make the most of your water ski and wakeboard experience, you can also grab some lessons from the experts!

Fishing

When it comes time to drop in a line, our secluded creeks and rivers boast some of the best inland fishing in Australia.
Our waterways are a breeding ground for native fish species including one of the most prized trophies, Australia’s largest freshwater fish, the Murray Cod. Other species native to the region include the Redfin (English Perch), Silver Perch (Brim), Golden Perch (Yellowbelly), freshwater Murray Cray (season closed for 5 years) and the Yabby.
If fishing is not your game, and you just want to explore the elements of nature not accessible by road or foot, sit back and relax in your boat or tinny and let River Country take care of the rest!

The many Fishing Classic events held across the region attract thousands of people each year to enjoy the superb fishing on offer in this region.
