Here in the Upper Murray River you'll find adventure

Here in the Upper Murray, where Australia’s Greatest River is born, you’ll find a unique adventure playground, just waiting to be discovered.

The area remains virtually the same as when Banjo Paterson visited Jack Riley, in 1890 and was moved to immortalise it in his famous poem “The Man From Snowy River”. Today, by taking to the mountains on horseback you can answer the same call to adventure that led Jack to live out his days here.

There are a number of trail ride operators in the region who can cater for riders of all levels of experience. The different rides vary from a leisurely hours ride along magnificent forested trails to a ten-day safari, through more remote wilderness areas.

The operators' vast experience and unique brand of country hospitality ensure an unforgettable trail riding experience.

Another way to escape to the pristine wilderness and unique bushland that make up the Upper Murray is on foot.

The region is home to four National Parks and State Forests, where you can spend an afternoon on a peaceful stroll along any of the walking trails, or take on something a little more challenging like climbing to the summit of Mount Kosciuszko (Australia’s highest mountain) or Burrowa Pine Mountain. (Australia’s largest monolith 1½ times the size of Uluru).

Whatever your preference you will find an abundance of native plants and animals and spectacular scenery beyond compare.

Almost any trail, park or forest that can be seen on foot can also be explored on mountain bike. Enjoy a leisurely ride through the forest or a challenging mountain bike adventure complete with experienced and professional guides.

The Upper Murray is also home to a number of 4WD operators, ready to share their knowledge of the mountains, a picnic lunch and a plethora of yarns and secrets of the region. Most operators have both tag-along and passenger tours.

If setting off without a guide please cheek weather conditions and local knowledge on exploring the region at the Corryong Visitor Information left or with either Parks Victoria or the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service Information left at Khancoban.

There are so many ways to enjoy the pristine waters of the Upper Murray region.

Why not take a rafting tour and tackle the rapids of the Murray River in its infancy? A mountain stream swollen and racing with recent snow melt, this course is known for some of Australia’s most challenging rapids. Experienced rafting operators make it all seem so easy and guarantee an exciting and fun trip.

If you prefer something a little tamer, there are many outlets for canoe and boat hire.
