Murray River Tri-State
National Landscapes Objectives

July 2009


These objectives are borne out of a strong desire by our stakesholders (tourism operators, councils, regional tourism, Parks authorities, regional development bodies etc participating on the Steering Committee) in the Murray River Tri-State region to collaborate in the development of world-class tourism experiences to attract domestic and international visitors to our world-renowned landscape. The strategy aims to qualify the region as an Australian National Landscape while ensuring we develop both environmental and economically sustainable tourism opportunities to benefit all stakeholders.

Our Landscape:

The Murray River Tri-State region incorporates several significant national iconic and naturally unique landscapes including the World Heritage Willandra Lakes System and Mungo National Park and the Murray and Darling River’s. There is an abundance of national parks and diverse biospheres in a semi-arid mallee environment. The region contains an incredibly abundant indigenous culture and a fascinating European and pioneering history. It also offers a cosmopolitan lifestyle and international renown wine industry.

The region is uniquely positioned on the edge of the outback with gateways through Broken Hill and the Flinders Ranges from the north and west and through Swan Hill from the south-east. The Sturt Highway links to Adelaide, Sydney and Canberra and opportunities for touring loops from Melbourne. The region is serviced by Mildura’s large central regional airport. These strengths make us proud and determined to showcase the Murray River Tri-State region and its unique experiences to the world.

We have recognised and intend to build on the excellent and unique nature tourism product that has developed and is already operating in parts of the region.
