The Murray - Victoria

Think serene paddleboats sailing majestically down the Murray River and this is exactly the scene encapsulated by this marvellous region. The mighty Murray River flows gently forming the border that divides Victoria from New South Wales as it meanders south to the ocean. Visitors will experience a riviera atmosphere in a Mediterranean climate, with glorious sunny days there is plenty to do for those who have a long standing affair with the outdoors. Get back to the region's proud origins and head to Mildura Wharf, the place to be for those wishing to get out on the serene Murray River aboard a grand old paddlesteamer or cruise at your own pace as captain of a houseboat, stopping along the way to sample local produce from each town.

Echuca-Moama is ideal for water lovers looking for a getaway with water activities and a touch of history, fisherman will enjoy a spot of fishing at Swan Hill and the flourishing city of Shepparton is regarded as the 'capital' of Goulburn Valley.

Gather up the kids and jump aboard a canoe for some adventure on the water and maybe cast a line in or 'giddyup' on a horse riding adventure. Admire the countryside and the gentle weaving of the river from a different perspective and take flight in a hot air balloon over the lush landscape. From hiking, water skiing to golf and sailing to sampling food and wine there is absolutely no room for boredom.
