About the Murray River

Explore the untouched beauty of the river and the historic towns located along with it in this beautiful part of the world, located just an hour from Adelaide.

At more than 2500 kilometres long, there is no shortage of places to explore on Australia’s outback river highway.

The world’s fourth longest river twists and turns from the Snowy Mountains in NSW, along the Victorian border, and into South Australia, where it meets Lake Alexandria. It’s here, in the Murray River, Lakes, and Coorong region, where the darling of Australia’s river system reaches its end.

Abundant wildlife calls this tranquil haven home, and it’s easy to see why. Towering sandstone cliffs, hidden lagoons, waterfalls, and sandy beaches are just some of the breathtaking scenery on offer.

At about 130 million years old, this region is also steeped in Aboriginal history, culture, and heritage.

Learn how Australia’s Indigenous people made use of their natural environment and see why locals today choose to live on the banks of this much-loved river system.
