Our Story

Proud Riverland locals and passionate Murray River champions, Tony and Susie Sharley launched our signature tour, Murray River Walk, in 2016. Fast forward to 2020 and the small family owned business has grown its offering to include two more exciting Murray River experiences – Murray River Safari and Murray River Escapes.

Now known as Murray River Trails – we are keen to share our immersive multi day river journeys with you, right here on one of the most beautiful sections of river country in South Australia.
