The Murray Mallee is blessed with diverse and contrasting Australian landscapes and wildlife. This natural river road winds 2,530 kilometres through five contrasting landscapes of south-eastern Australia.

The Murray River begins as a small stream in the Australian Alps. It meanders and carves steep river banks to the Mallee, where it touches the Australian desert and our great outback region. There’s unique Aboriginal culture that reveals the story of mankind and ancient fossilised limestone cliffs before it finally enters the Southern Ocean at Goolwa.
