The Murray

Go beyond the river

The Murray tells a thousand tales in its famous waters: of paddle steamers, pioneers, ancient Aboriginal culture, the land it’s irrigated for centuries. Of the towns that have sprung up along its banks, now overflowing with incredible food and drink experiences, boutique hotels, and locals who want to help you connect with its endless stories. Beyond the river, you will find a world of wonder: meander through the moon-like landscapes of Mungo National Park, soar above candy-pink salt lakes, sandboard down towering dunes and much more. Come for the icon, stay for the unexpected.
