General Information about the Murray River

The Murray River is Australia's longest river. The Murray River supports a variety of unique river life adapted to its vagaries. This includes a variety of native fish such as the famous Murray cod, trout cod, golden perch, Macquarie perch, silver perch, eel-tailed catfish, Australian smelt and western carp gudgeon, to name a few, and other aquatic species.

There are a number of both historic paddle steamers and newer boats offering cruises ranging from a half an hour to five days.
