The Murray River, VIC: Destination Guide

Things to do and see in the Victorian Murray River Region

The Murray River is one filled with rich culture and beautiful back drops. The Victorian side has so much to offer, just book a trip and stop in at popular towns like Mildura and Echuca.

Take a break, settle in, see great sights and enjoy a traditional paddle boat ride from Echuca’s famous river pier. If that doesn't float your boat, join in the local love for all things water sports. Skiing, wake-boarding and kayaking, being just a few of the fun things to do. A hive of history, the Riverina has strong roots to the successful Australian wool industry. Housing towns, filled with stunning displays of rich historical landmarks keeping the past, well and truly alive.

If it’s a life in the fast lane you like, the river is the perfect spot. High speed action events like the Southern 80 water skiing race, in Echuca each Easter are a must see. And to slow the pace back down, there’s the River boat music festival - unwind, relax and see some great live talent from the blues and roots music scene.
