River Cruising
For the Foodies

If your idea of a great holiday is one which gets your pulse racing, the region won’t disappoint. If watersports are your thing, there’s waterskiing and wakeboarding, as well as jetski hire available near some of the river’s widest, flatest stretches. Back on dry land, there’s horse racing at the Murray Bridge Racing Club and horsepower at the town’s speedway. Want to see it all from above? We've got skydiving with epic views.

The Murray River Lakes & Coorong region is a mecca for watersports of all kinds!
