EXPERIENCE AUSTRALIA’S LONGEST RIVER
Murray River Trails is the first operator of guided multi-day walking and cruising ecotourism experiences on an Australian river. Its experience portfolio comprises of ‘Murray River Walk’, ‘Murray River Safari, and ‘Murray River Escapes’.
Experiences depart from the historic South Australian town of Renmark, the majority taking place during a ‘touring season’ which spans between March and November.
