Cruise holidays Australia: slow down on the Murray River

Are you thinking about taking cruise holidays in Australia? The Murray River is a classic trip that will allow you to see some of the highlights of Australia - or just kick back and relax.

The temperate climate that wraps itself around the Murray will put you at ease and help slow things down. It's an excellent alternative to getaway from the fast-paced life you live in order to be one with nature, float through the calm river, and spend quality time with your loved ones.

The great Murray River is surrounded by a desert country and the open plains of South Australia. The warmth of the weather will have you on the water cruising on a houseboat while you enjoy the soft breeze and the sound of nature. Sail to Swan Hill and experience the river on a 105-year-old Paddle Steamer Pyap or take on a range of water sports to cool off – parasail, water ski or swim.

Go back in time and visit Echuca-Moama, a heritage river town. Its rich port history has tourists leisurely walking along the red gum wharf and experiencing an authentic operating steam port. Tee off at the best golf courses in Victoria where you can take it slow and be free of worry.

Enjoy the company of your children and go on a fishing trip along the banks of the Murray River, or camp at Yarrawonga-Mulwala. Experience the Australian outback and explore the sand dunes of Mungo National Park in the oasis of Mildura.
