It's essential to embrace the Murray River when holidaying in this region, and taking advantage of the abundant water is simple.
Begin with a relaxing paddle steamer ride. Envisage the past with ease at the historical Port of Echuca: this bustling waterway teems with paddle steamers. Mildura, Swan Hill, and Yarrawonga-Mulwala are other great launch points for a paddle steamer cruise.
Take the controls yourself by hiring a houseboat, or for a fast-paced perspective of the Murray try water-skiing or wakeboarding.
Enjoy more of the outdoors with a round at one of the Murray’s many first-class golf courses. Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort has three courses alone.
A host of Murray region national parks are idea for a stroll: with its bountiful River Red gum forest Barmah National Park is top pick. Among the many cherished gardens are the Australian Inland Botanic Gardens near Mildura.
Explore the Murray region’s engrossing past. Travel back in time at Swan Hill’s Pioneer Settlement or soak up Mildura’s history along the Chaffey Trail. While you’re in this vibrant city, check out classic art deco buildings and the Mildura Arts Centre.
The Murray region grows abundant delicious produce, which can be sampled from high-end restaurants to cafés and farmers markets.
Wine also flows at a rapid rate. The Murray is home to several wine regions, including Goulburn Valley, Rutherglen, Echuca Moama, and Swan Hill.
