THE MURRAY RIVER

Reconnect with nature & history in the Murray River region

Established as an irrigation settlement in 1887, Mildura is a thriving regional centre that is home to over 50,000 people. The region’s endless summer sun & delicious culinary delights make it the perfect destination for your next holiday. Explore the winding Murray River (Australia’s longest river) on historic paddlesteamers and learn about the region’s interesting history.

Downstream, the Murray River crosses the border into South Australia. From the Riverland town of Mannum, you can board the historic Murray Princess for extended multi-day cruises along the river with a range of fun included activities each day.
