We bet you haven’t uncovered all the gems yet!
It blows our minds that the Murray River, Lakes and Coorong region is so close. Set along Australia’s longest stretch of river, it’s bursting with adventure that’s centred around river time — where time doesn’t matter at all. That spells maxo relaxo time, and we’re all about it!
Play a while
On and off the water, here’s a few things to entertain.

Mannum – This historic town is the birthplace of the great Aussie paddle steamer and nostalgic river cruising on PW Mayflower and PS Marion. The Mannum Dock Museum steps back in time with some great facts, like the 1956flood that had people driving their boats along the main street to buy drinks being served from the pub’s balcony!
Murray Bridge Regional Gallery – You may not have guessed, but it’s one of the premier galleries in Australia, with a range of exhibitions from incredibleAboriginal, local and well-known artists.
