The Murray

Discover wonderful experiences and spectacular natural beauty in The Murray, named after the mighty Murray River winding through the region. You can ride paddle-steamers, enjoy fun river activities and riverside camping, explore intriguing heritage, and visit wineries and cellar doors.

The iconic river flows from the pristine Snowy Mountains down to Albury and joins the Darling River in Wentworth, in far south-western NSW, and then winds to the Southern Ocean. From Albury to Wentworth, and in the charming towns in between, are many memorable things to do and see.

A paddlesteamer on the Murray River - Echuca

Fishing, canoeing, swimming, waterskiing and sailplaning are popular. There are sandy river beaches and pretty riverbank picnic spots. Magnificent national parks range from the protected wetlands and majestic river red gums of Murray Valley and Barmah to World Heritage-listed Mungo National Park.

The heritage and culture of The Murray is fascinating too. Australia’s longest river was a highway for steam-driven riverboats and the twin towns of Echuca and Moama are the paddle-steamer capital, where you’ll find river tours. Paddle-steamer trips are also available in Wentworth and Mulwala.

You’ll find plenty of places to stay in The Murray, an enticing destination for golf with some of the finest courses in Country NSW. A marvellous accommodation option for family, friends or romantic couples is to hire a houseboat and explore at your own leisure, taking in the abundant wildlife.

Your tastebuds are in for a treat as well. Tasty food and wine experiences include a riverboat trip to a winery, delicious festivals and farmers markets. In addition, a lively events calendar is filled with shows, performances and festivals. The Deni Ute Muster is a classic country festival in Deniliquin.
