Food & drink

Part of Australia’s food bowl, chefs around the country know the fresh produce from the Murray is second to none. Add award-winning wines, boutique brews and innovative eateries in the towns along the river and you’re in a food lover’s paradise.

The Murray’s rich, fertile soil produces heirloom tomatoes, purple garlic, pink salt, free-range pork, organic honey, black and green olives, and a rainbow of seasonal fruit and vegetables. Stock up on fresh, local produce at one of the region’s many farmers markets, farmgate stores or roadside stalls.

From modern Australian fare or wood-fired pizza by the river to homemade cakes and great coffee, there’s something for every palate along the Murray.

The second-largest wine region in Australia produces lush chardonnay, fruity shiraz and emerging Mediterranean varieties. Taste your way through the Murray via the many scenic cellar doors. You can even take a paddle steamer cruise and stop off for a tasting.

Along with delicious wines, you’ll find locally crafted gin, whisky and beer in the Murray region – even better when shared with friends.
