At 2520 kilometres, the Murray River is among the longest navigable rivers on Earth, with only the Amazon and the Nile ranking higher.

Spanning three states from its source in the Kosciuszko National Park of NSW to Murray Mouth in South Australia, it creates a natural border between NSW and Victoria for much of its length and provides an inspiring backdrop for an inland bush getaway or road trip. With sparsely settled towns and plenty of wide-open space, discover life’s simple pleasures along the banks of the Murray River on your next holiday. You’ll find plenty to entertain you no matter what your passion.

For nature lovers

With no less than 10 national parks and a range of conservation areas within easy reach, a holiday along the Murray River is sure to appeal to nature lovers. Lace up your boots or pump up your tires and explore a wide range of hiking, mountain biking and 4WD tracks and trails. Woomargama National Park is just a short half-hour drive from Ingenia Holidays Lake Hume, while Murray Valley National Park is easily accessed from Ingenia Holidays Murray Bend.

For water lovers

Just a few minutes’ walk from our parks, you can swim, fish, kayak and more in the waters of the Murray River and Lake Hume. Pick up a fishing permit, drop a line in and revel in the peace and tranquillity while trying to lure perch, redfin, trout, carp, bream and, of course, Murray cod onto your hook for dinner. The kids will love scouring the banks for freshwater shrimp and yabbies too. For something a little different, head west from Ingenia Holidays Murray Bend to the historic port town of Eucha where you can get a taste of yesteryear cruising on an iconic paddle steamer.

For history buffs

One of the best things about heading inland for a holiday is that the pace of life is just that little bit slower and history seems a little less removed. Pioneer parks are a great way to relive the past and appreciate how far we’ve come but even soaking up the architecture in the many historic towns will have you feeling nostalgic. The Great Aussie Beer Shed & Heritage Farm Museum is a Murray River experience not to be missed. Here, you will find four museums in one venue, with collections spanning Australiana, beer memorabilia, classic cars, and horse drawn carriages.

For art lovers

You may be out of the city, but there’s plenty of art and culture to be found inland too. Visit the Murray Art Museum Albury (MAMA) for contemporary exhibitions or combine art and nature as you stroll or cycle along the Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk. This beautiful five-kilometre riverside trail is dotted with sculptures created by local Aboriginal artists. Interpretative panels and videos accessed via smartphone add another dimension to the experience.
