Join Greg Grainger as he experiences the soul of Australia…our mighty Murray River. The 2520 km journey begins at the river’s source and river border between Victoria and New South Wales at Cowombat Flat and ends at the sea, the Murray mouth near Goolwa, South Australia.

Only 40 kilometres from Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciusko, the snow gently falls as Greg discovers the headwaters of the Murray River. He moves through Man from Snowy River country and the Upper Murray to Lake Hume. You’ll experience Australia’s diverse food bowl and communities, historic wineries, orchards, Murray Cod nurseries and much more.

Enjoy Australia’s largest paddle steamer fleet in Echuca Moama and the serenity of houseboating on the Murray River. Dine with legendary chef Stefano de Pieri in Mildura and meet a local Paakantji Aboriginal guide Graham Clarke from Harry Nanya and explore the Perry Sandhills, then kayak through the stunning biosphere near Renmark Paringa, South Australia.

As the Murray River heads south from the great nor’ west bend at Morgan, you’ll explore Lock No.1 and its unique fish ladder and the golden, ancient limestone cliffs of Big Bend. Kayak around the amazing river heritage of Mannum and see the shacks of the Coorong. Finally Greg encounters some local seals and completes his Murray River journey as he paddles out to the Southern Ocean and Encounter Bay.
