From its source in the Snowy Mountains in New South Wales, the Murray River flows 2530 kilometres to the Southern Ocean in South Australia. Ancient limestone cliffs, beautiful river red gums, citrus groves and lush vineyards are hallmarks of the Riverland section of the River, while large tracts of native bush, historic towns, towering ochre cliffs, and the austere beauty of the Mallee illustrate the Murraylands. Murray, Australia’s greatest river is a must to visit and explore while in South Australia and what better than Murray River houseboats to experience it all.
