Murray River Walk
Explore Australia’s greatest river, The Murray, within the internationally recognised Riverland Ramsar Wetland in South Australia. Guided easy walking combined with peaceful cruising immerses you in the landscape and reveals the pioneering history of paddle steamers and a new environmental stewardship.
Encounter diverse wildlife and waterbirds along the Murray River, creeks and old oxbow lagoons that meander through ancient red gum forests dwarfed by spectacular red ochre coloured cliffs. Enjoy a pre-breakfast sunrise hike along the cliffs on one morning to start your day. The daily walking routes are on private property and conservancy areas with exclusive access for walk guests only.
Murray River Walk is an easy 40km walk over primarily flat ground, ranging from 10-15km per day. This walk offers a unique opportunity for a mix of walking and river cruising, making it the perfect choice for people who are new to multiday walk style holidays.
Spend three nights on a modern houseboat that cruises to your daily walking destination, complete with hot shower and top deck spa overlooking the river. Savour three course dinners each night created from local food and wine showcasing the produce of the Riverland food bowl. Celebrate your journey with a tour and lunch at the award winning Wilkadene Woolshed Brewery.
Each night you stay aboard a modern comfortable 10 berth houseboat with your own double room, plus hot showers and a hot spa on the top deck. All linen is provided including a bath towel. Leave your belongings in your room each day as the houseboat will travel to your daily walking destination. Dine aboard the houseboat on superb local menu designed by our consultant chef, renowned native food pioneer Andrew Fielke. Regional Riverland food bowl products are showcased where possible.
