The Murray River is an Australian icon. More than a hundred years ago, paddle steamers used to venture up and down the length of the river, transporting agricultural produce to and from riverside townships.
These days, you can enjoy the waters and surrounding wilderness by paddling your canoe through the serene backwaters or exploring the many walking trails that wind themselves through the parks. The abundant birdlife provides a perfect addition to the region’s tranquil setting.
Treasures like the Murray River National Park are fantastic camping spots for your holiday by the river.
