The Murray River, divides the states of Victoria and New South Wales and is a holiday destination close to Australians' hearts. Just 3 hours from Melbourne, it has been long favoured as a weekend holiday spot, as well as a staple location for those who love to water ski, meander in a houseboat or enjoy riverside camping.
There is a common misconception when it comes to the Murray and that is that it is the heart of motorised water sports and whilst it is a mecca for these, the Murray has been blessed with many quieter tributaries that are incredible when explored at a slower pace.
Ecotourism holidays are a growing attraction along the Murray and an increasing number of operators are offering unique experiences to help you get a little closer to nature. Basing ourselves in Moama, the centre of the Murray, we spent a weekend exploring some new and exciting experiences that truly capture the spirit of this special destination.
