MORE ABOUT THE MURRAY RIVER

Explore Australia’s largest and diverse river, the iconic Murray River, 65 million years in the making… Over time it has witnessed many changes such as earthquakes, huge lakes, warm shallow seas, varying coastlines, climate change and the alteration of the river course.

The Murray River is 2,520 kilometres long and cuts its way from the Australian Alps in Victoria across the flat, vast, old Riverina Plain – through mountains, steep banks, and river red gums, Mallee and the outback, golden limestone cliffs, to the lakes and the mouth near Goolwa South Australia.

The majestic Murray River offers a natural environment of red gum forests, extensive wetlands and National Parks such as Kosciuszko, Hattay-Kulkyne, Mallee Cliffs, Murray Sunset Chowilla Game Reserve are all close by and the Coorong borders its entrance to the sea.
