The Murray River Run – One of the World’s great river journeys

Along with the River Darling the Murray River forms part of one of the world’s great river systems. Some of Australia’s most dramatic river scenery is found along the Murray River as it curves it’s way past a cinematic backdrop of golden limestone cliffs, graceful redgum forests, river banks and flats, lagoons, station country, orchards, vineyards, bird and wildlife.

The Murray River Run program offers a selection of personalised small group cruises along the length of the Murray between Albury and Goolwa. With a maximum of 39 passengers on board Murray River Run cruises travel in modern purpose built boats with big picture windows and open air upper deck areas providing the perfect vantage point as you cruise.

Cruises are one-way to maximise scenic opportunities, averaging around 100 river kilometres per day, and coach transport back to the departure port is included. All meals and ensuite hotel/motel accommodation are included during the cruise with dinner, accommodation and breakfast in riverside towns along the way each evening.

- Wellington to Border Cliffs 5 days/4 nights
- Goolwa to Mildura 8 days/7 nights

Cruising the Length of the Murray River

All inclusive Packages:

Wellington to Border Cliffs (Vic/SA border)
Operates March – May & September – October
5 days/4 nights – 558 river kms

Cruise upstream from Wellington, on the edge of Lake Alexandrina, travelling almost the entire length of the river in South Australia with all meals, hotel motel accommodation, on shore excursions, captain’s commentary and coach travel back to Wellington included.

This cruise may operate in reverse, travelling by coach from Wellington to Border Cliffs and cruising downstream.

Goolwa to Mildura
Operates twice per year only
Usually in March and September
8 days/7 nights – 876 river kms

Offering a rare opportunity to cross huge Lake Alexandrina, this cruise really does include all of the river in SA and a sizable section of Victoria as well, plus a section of the River Darling too. Because many passengers come from the eastern states this is the only cruise that does NOT include coach transfer back to the port of departure (Goolwa). Coach transfer from Adelaide CBD to Goolwa on the morning of departure is included instead.

All meals, accommodation, captain’s commentary, ensuite accommodation and forward coach transfer are included.

Renmark to Mildura
Operates twice per year only
Usually in March and September
4 days/3 nights – 320 river kms

The shortest of the cruises, this cruise travels through the orchards and vineyards of the Riverland and Sunraysia districts, as well as a section of the River Darling upstream from Wentworth.

All meals, accommodation, captain’s commentary, ensuite accommodation and coach transfer back to Renmark are included.

This cruise may operate in reverse, travelling downstream from Mildura to Renmark.

Albury to Echuca
Operates about 3 times per year, during the months of October and November only
6 days/5 nights – 486 river kms

This section of the river is rarely cruised except for tinnies & canoes and sections are quite isolated. The river flows in this section are highest during peak irrigation season and for this reason this cruise can only operate around November. Even then it is subject to water levels and can sometimes be quite an adventure.

All meals, accommodation, captain’s commentary, ensuite accommodation and coach transfer back to Albury are included.

Echuca to Mildura
Operates once per year only, usually at the end of November/start of December each year.
8 days/7 nights – 826 river kms

One of two longer 8 day cruises. Water levels in this section of the river also peak during irrigation season. Because of the variations in river levels throughout the year and season by season this cruise is scheduled to operate only during late November or early December.

All meals, accommodation, captain’s commentary, ensuite accommodation and coach transfer back to Echuca are included.
