At A Glance Departures

Experience Australia’s greatest river, The Murray in South Australia. Over 4 exhilarating days, explore its red-gum forests and wetlands on foot and by boat encountering wildlife, waterbirds and spectacular cliffs while discovering the stories of this ancient landscape. Dine and relax each night on floating houseboat accommodation.

The Murray River lies within the internationally recognised Riverland Ramsar Wetland of International Importance in South Australia. A combination of guided walking and peaceful cruising immerses you in this unique landscape, exploring the rich river heritage including Aboriginal culture, pastoralism and the intricate network of paddle-steamers, locks and weirs that operate within this fascinating river system. This is a wildlife spotters paradise, the wetlands area is renowned for its water birds, the endangered Southern bell frog and the handsome Regent parrot. Encounters with Red and Grey Kangaroos, emus, black swans and pelicans are a regular occurrence on the Murray River and 179 bird species have been recorded, including the elusive Red-capped Robin and mischievous Fairywrens. 

All water transfers and the Day 4 return cruise from Bunyip Reach cliffs to Renmark are on a 12-seater catamaran cruiser which your guides will expertly navigate through more than 70km of tranquil waterways. At the end of each day's walking, you will be greeted with a beverage at the campfire before a 3-course dinner and a restful night in the comfort of a double room with superb river views on board your floating houseboat accommodation.

As well as all guided walking and cruising, your tour includes 3 nights' accommodation on board modern houseboat accommodation, all meals, Riverland roasted coffee and local chocolate.

A highly enjoyable and memorable way to learn about a complex ecosystem. Your highly knowledgeable and experienced guides will inspire you with their passion for the region, leaving you with memories of a beautiful and diverse wetland landscape.

  • FEATURES

    Luxury walk at the iconic location: The Murray River drains 1/7 the area of Australia and flows over 2000 km to reach the Riverland at Renmark. More than a million people live in its catchment area which covers parts of 4 states and the Australian Capital Territory. It starts as a fast flowing stream in the Australian Alps and changes to a broad and meandering river through South Australia. It is a food bowl, a playground, a wildlife sanctuary and Australia's most studied river. We look forward to sharing its stories with you.

    The cruise: All water transfers and the Day 4 return cruise from Bunyip Reach cliffs to Renmark are on a 12 seater “open air” catamaran cruiser. A stable and secure craft, your guides will expertly navigate through more than 70km of our spectacular waterways.

    River Heritage: Murray River Walk will help you discover a rich river heritage including Aboriginal culture, pastoralism and the paddle-steamers, locks and weirs and river regulation, irrigation development and environmental stewardship, in a region that has become the fruit and food bowl of South Australia..

    Immerse Yourself in Nature: Murray River Walk is a journey through the Riverland Ramsar Wetland of International Importance, renowned for its waterbirds, red gum forests and the nationally threatened Southern bell frog and the Regent parrot. Encounters with Red and Grey Kangaroos, emus, black swans and pelicans are common and 179 bird species have been recorded, including the spectacular Red-capped Robin and mischievous Fairywrens.

    Managed environmental watering in the ephemeral wetlands on this landscape attracts thousands of waterfowl, spoonbills, ibis and egrets, and new water triggers a cacophony of frogs calling. Flowering Eucalypts, wattles and emu bush dwarf the pretty pink carpets of flowering “pigface”.

While every effort will be made to provide the services and experiences as offered in our brochure, on our website, and in our trip letters, we reserve the right to vary your itinerary. In the event that we are forced to change your arrangements, substitute arrangements of a similar standard will be provided.

We refer you to the conditions regarding travel insurance.

    Pre-Existing Medical Conditions and Age Limits
    You need to advise OCT4 PTY LTD and the tour operator on any pre-existing medical condition, mobility impairment and/or disability that might reasonably be expected to increase the risk of your requiring medical attention, or that might affect the normal conduct of a trip and the enjoyment of other trip members.

    Cancellation by The Tour Operator
    The walks take place in very special wilderness settings. The tour operator is at the mercy of nature in all her beauty and all her fury. The tour operator will under no circumstance knowingly place at risk the health and well-being of our guests and guides. In the case of natural threats, acts of God and the like (e.g. bushfires, impassable snow, etc) the tour operator may need to cancel a walk with very little notice. In some cases, this can occur after the walk has commenced. The tour operator reserves the right to cancel any walk up to 60 days prior to departure if a minimum of 4 walkers are unable to meet for a tour. If the tour operator needs to cancel for any reason, the cost of the walk or any other costs associated with travel to the designated pick up point, overnight accommodation, meals, etc will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore we strongly recommend travel insurance be taken out prior to travel.

    Force Majeure
    'Force Majeure' means (without restriction) any event which OCT4 Pty Ltd or its third party providers could not, even with due care, foresee or avoid. Force Majeure covers events such as, but not limited to, adverse weather conditions, fire and all similar events beyond our control. In the case of Force Majeure OCT4 Pty Ltd will not accept liability, and reserves the right to change and cancel trips.

    Evacuations
    In rare circumstances, due to injury or unforeseen illness, the tour operator may need to evacuate you from a remote part of the walk. Helicopter evacuations are expensive and in most cases will be at a cost to the customer.

    For Australian residents, under the Australian Government Medicare Act, it is prohibited for any domestic travel insurance product to provide any financial reimbursement with regard to ambulance or air ambulance services. We therefore strongly advise our customers to take specific ambulance cover through their health insurance provider. Evacuation cost will not be covered by the OCT4 PTY LTD and therefore it is also strongly recommended that our customers take out travel insurance to cover (amongst other things) the costs associated with evacuation.

    Travel Insurance
    In view of the heavy cancellation penalties applied to cancelled reservations in certain circumstances, we strongly recommends suitable travel insurance be purchased at the time the holding deposit is paid. We recommend insurance cover that covers any loss which may be suffered due to cancellation. We also strongly recommend comprehensive travel insurance against loss of baggage and medical expenses.

    reviews A very relaxing holiday. It was great to part of the outdoors and discover the wonderful life on the River Murray but in style and comfort. We loved the spa on the top deck of the boat - it was awesome cruising down the river in a spa. We met some great people on the cruise. We very much enjoyed the guided walking tour of the wetlands. It was good to see some much wildlife. It was definitely a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday
