Access and fitness

Fitness and terrain

Our tours along the Murray River in South Australia require low to moderate fitness levels and tracks are rated as easy to moderate.


All our tours are guided and walking sections are on unformed tracks, following natural clearings in vegetation and landscape.

  • The terrain is relatively flat with a few gentle hill walks up and down a 40 metre rise
  • Daily walking distances range from 10-14km
  • The terrain can include sand, clay, low lying vegetation, shallow water bodies and leaf litter
  • Walking poles are available to guests


Canoeing sections of our tours are also guided and utilise the downstream current of the Murray River.

  • Guided by certified canoe instructors
  • Personal Floatation Device (PFD) provided
  • Double, 2-person canoes used
  • No previous canoeing experience is required
  • Maximum 2 hours spent canoeing



We invite guests with low mobility to join our tours with the option to spend part or the entire of the duration of the tour on board the houseboat while the rest of the group is out walking. They will be reunited with the group at the end of each walking day.

Due to the nature of the unformed walking trails and houseboat accommodation, our tours are not considered suitable for wheelchair users.

Assistance Dogs

Tours operate in ecologically sensitive environments and State National Parks where there could be potential hazards, therefore assistance animals are not permitted on our tours.
