South Australia's River Boat Trail from Border Cliffs - Goolwa

River Boat Trail

During the latter half of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries the River Murray was a major inland highway for pastoralists, settlers and travellers. Fleets of paddle steamers and their barges carried produce from stations and farms to transit points downriver.

There were floating shops bringing goods to the settlers, mail steamers crossing the lakes, mission boats and passenger liners, as well as small fishing boats, ferries, powerful milk launches and boats that helped build the weirs and kept the channels free of snags.

Ports, trading companies and shipbuilding facilities were established, and many of the Murray’s settlements developed around the trade brought by the river boats.

Interpretive panels are located at:

Border Cliffs | Renmark | Berri | Loxton | Waikerie | Morgan | Blanchetown | Mannum
Murray Bridge | Tailem Bend | Wellington | Meningie | Point Malcolm | Milang | Goolwa
