The Murray

Stretching 2,700 kilometres from the mountains of the Great Dividing Range in north-eastern Victoria to near Adelaide in South Australia, The Murray River varies from a mountain stream in its upper reaches to a broad meandering river lined with sandy beaches in its lower reaches.

Watch the distinctive waters of the Darling and Murray rivers meet from the town of Wentworth. Close by Mildura offers delectable citrus groves and vineyards, endless sunshine, great food and wine, and abundance of water-based activities.

Swan Hill is a great destination for outdoor activities, good food and wine and pioneer history. Stop in at Echuca-Moama, a heritage river town home to a fleet of paddle steamers and a great base for waterskiing, swimming, cruising or taking a houseboat holiday.

The twin towns of Cobram and Barooga sit either side of the picturesque Murray River, with wide sandy beaches and towering river gums. Yarrawonga-Mulwala boasts a large and beautiful man-made lake.

The thriving modern city of Albury Wodonga offers a charming mix of leisurely country style, stately heritage buildings, established parks and gardens and tree-lined streets. Situated in the Goulburn Valley, the Shepparton area is a major agricultural and food processing region termed the “food bowl of Australia”.

For a holiday on the water, fine food and beautiful scenery The Murray River cannot be missed.
