Running along the southern edge of NSW, there’s a remarkable region that’s full of stories. About the river, the land and the people who live there. It’s a place where great food is a part of everyday life and the drinks are one of a kind. Where you’ll want to spend as much time as you can outdoors, where the natural beauty will take your breath away, and where you’ll be inspired by fascinating history and culture. In The Murray, you can share a meal, an experience and an adventure.
The Murray is a vast region, so take the time to discover it at your own pace. Four of NSW’s iconic road trips pass through The Murray, taking in spectacular landscapes, laid-back country towns, delicious food, boutique distilleries and the mighty Murray River. Jump in the car and get exploring.
The Murray is brimming with farms, vineyards and artisan producers. There’s a delicious experience at every turn from picking your own berries to gourmet food trails and paddock to plate dining. Eat lunch by the river or in the shade of an olive grove, then taste boutique wines and sip whisky in a century-old flour mill.
The longest river in Australia, spectacular national parks, ancient lunar landscapes and thousands of native birds – The Murray is bursting with natural wonders. Hike through untouched bushland, kayak through ghostly river red gums, discover 20,000-year-old footprints, cruise on an historic paddlesteamer and reel in a legendary Murray River cod.
With more than a dozen spectacular golf courses winding along the length of the Murray River, there are plenty to suit first timers, weekend golfers or skilled players looking for a challenge. You’ll find some of the best courses in regional Australia with pristine fairways, stylish clubhouses and even curious kangaroos sizing up your swing.
