The Murray River is Australia’s longest river and the third longest navigable river in the world, after the Amazon and the Nile. It sustains not only a great diversity in flora and fauna and the largest River Red Gum Forest in the world, but also many communities in three states of Australia – New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia.
The Murray quietens the senses and brings a stillness that is peaceful and tranquil. The mallee vegetation, wetlands, billabongs and waterways of the region create a unique and important habitat for many of Australia’s vulnerable species including the malleefowl, bush stone-curlew and southern bell frog.
Many of Australia’s favourite animals can be spotted — including kangaroos, koalas and the very shy, cute and non-cuddly echidna. It’s a bird watcher’s paradise so bring your binoculars — or simply out on the balcony and watch the pelicans glide by.
Experience an ever-changing environment of quiet beauty on The River Murray.
