Murray River Trails

Fall in love with the Murray River as our guides create experiences that will immerse you in an ancient landscape rich in Aboriginal culture, diverse wildlife, restored wetlands, riverine forests, and spectacular scenery, and of course superb local food and wine.

Flowing 2,500km from its source to where it meets the Southern Ocean in South Australia, the Murray River has created inspiring stories from its beginnings 600,000 years ago.

South Australia

I loved all of it, as each day was distinctly different from the other so it’s hard to pick just one highlight. Our guides were knowledgeable and passionate about the River, its history and purpose. And they were always willing to stop and take interest in our questions.
