On the river

The beautiful Murray River is part peaceful retreat and part aquatic playground, providing endless fun in and on the water. From sunrise paddles to sunset barbecue cruises, it’s an experience best shared with friends.

Summer is peak season, but idyllic conditions, warm sunny days and glorious experiences make late winter and spring a lovely time to visit. Before the river explodes with full-throttle holiday fun, get a taste of this land it’s its natural beauty.

Kayak among ghostly river red gums, watch graceful birds in protected wetlands and stop for a riverside picnic of fresh local produce.

Hop aboard a historic Murray River paddle steamer for a leisurely cruise along the calm waters. Or watch the river turn to gold on an elegant sunset dinner cruise.

Hire a houseboat and explore the gentle curves of the river at your own pace – you don’t even need a boat license. It’s the perfect way to spend time with friends and family and share an escape where the only alarm clock is the birds.

If you’re up for some action, try your hand at waterskiing or wakeboarding for a thrilling ride. Or slow things down with a spot of fishing – there are plenty of quiet places to drop a line and catch a famed Murray Cod (or two).
