Outdoor adventure

The Murray is home to incredible natural landscapes, from rolling hills to thriving wetlands and ancient rock formations that seem to belong on the moon.

The longest river in Australia, the Murray River flows more than 2,500km, weaving through spectacular national parks where Australia’s most iconic native animals live amongst untouched bushland.

From towering river red gums to flourishing wetlands and intriguing desert landscapes, The Murray is teeming with native wildlife. Explore the beautiful national parks to see curious kangaroos and sleepy koalas in their natural bushland habitat. Keep an eye out for the elusive platypus bobbing near the banks at dusk.

The Aboriginal people of The Murray have been deeply connected to the land and water for tens of thousands of years. Walk through this living history and discover ancient rock art, middens and canoe trees along the banks. Learn the Dreaming story of Ponde, the giant ancestral cod who formed the river with sweeps of his huge tail.

Discover The Murray’s natural wonders in your own way. Hike through untouched bushland, camp on an isolated sandy river beach, kayak through ghostly river red gums, cruise on a historic paddle steamer or reel in a legendary Murray Cod.

There’s a new natural discovery to share every day in The Murray.
