Australia's greatest river, the mighty Murray, winds its way through some of the south’s most picturesque scenery, including ancient red gum forests, wetlands, and ochre-tinted cliffs. This low-key four-day, three-night trip makes the most of your time here, fitting in sunrise hiking, catamaran cruising along the river, birding, and a lesson in the paddle steamers that once plied these waters. You'll spend all three nights on a contemporary houseboat that cruises to the daily walking destination, passing through locks along the way. It’s got everything you need to wind the day down in style: hot showers, a top-deck spa overlooking the river, and three-course dinners paired with wine that showcase the local bounty of the region.
