Murraylands and Mallee region, South Australia
Murraylands...Adelaide’s lifeblood flows to the sea
G’day...from our Riverland neighbour in the north, the mighty Murray River takes a final turn at Nor’ West bend towards the Southern Ocean. It’s decisive move seems to allow the river to relax and broaden, carving, deep, ochre chasms through the limestone remnants of an ancient seabed. Bringing an oasis into this semi-arid landscape covered in mallee, the many stemmed vegetation that has adapted to such harsh conditions (map).
You can cruise the Murray River in a houseboat or take a spectaular river cruise. Discover the spectacular wildlife of Monarto Zoo and unique Aussie experience of Big Bend by Night. Explore our historic towns or take a bush. Relax by the river or ramp things up with some skiing and wakeboarding...the Murraylands has it all.
Award-winning accommodation, houseboats, events, cruises, attractions, great country food and wine and country-style hospitality, and you've found the perfect escape for family, friends and even lovers.
The Murray River also flows our lives of character rich communities with a passion for fun, life and experience. It's a wonderful playground far from the frustrations of modern life – yet just an hour from Adelaide, you’ll discover the Murraylands. Discover our history, connect with nature, experience the hidden beauty of the Mallee or just cruise our soulful water….whatever you do,we guarantee youll enjoy yourself!
