The Murray River

The Murray

  • The Murray River near Mildura, The Murray, Victoria, Australia

The mighty Murray River stretches 2,700 kilometres from the mountains of the Great Dividing Range in north-eastern Victoria to near Adelaide in South Australia.

A mountain stream in its upper reaches, the river turns into a meandering river lined with red gum forests and sandy beaches in its lower reaches. The region is home to over 350 varieties of birds, as well as many species of mammals, reptiles and fish.

Traverse the region from end to end and delight in the activity and diversity found along the way. Inhabited by Aboriginal tribes for thousands of years, the Murray River is now the lifeblood of Victoria's food bowl and the centre of social, sports and cultural activities.
