Flowing from its source in the Australian Alps, the Murray River flows 1,558 miles through the state of Victoria to its mouth near Goolwa, in South Australia. A cruise along this river will provide the opportunity to experience some of Australia’s finest cities, towns, and landmarks.
Many cruises depart from the historic town of Mannum, which was where trade and communication along the Murray River was established. As you sit back and relax on your luxurious river cruise ship, be sure to keep an eye open for grey kangaroos, wombats, and echidnas roaming within their natural habitats. Explore the cities of Blanchetown, Waikerie, Morgan, Younghusband, and many more as you soak in the culture of the warm and inviting Australian people. On selected itineraries, you may even have the chances to sample the wild delights of bush tucker.
