Murray River Walk, South Australia
Murray River Walk, South AustraliaAustralia'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.
