The Murray has it all if your coming from Sydney
The iconic Murray River is lined with 600-year-old river gums, "drowned" trees, paddle steamers and houseboats. At the twin cities of Albury Wodonga, straddling the border of NSW and Victoria, you'll find a lively arts culture, heritage buildings, gardens and recreational facilities. Nearby Corowa is known as the birthplace of Federation in Australia - it was in the old Corowa courthouse, in 1893, that the decision was made to draw up the constitution for the new nation.
From NSW you can access Echuca Moama and 150 kilometres north-west of Balranald is the World Heritage-listed Mungo National Park. Much of it covers an ancient dry lake bed featuring crescent-shaped dunes. Situated at the confluence of Australia's two greatest rivers, Wentworth is a good launching pad for fun on the water. Luxury houseboats, paddle steamers and canoes are the top three options, or you can watch the action from a riverside restaurant or winery. Source
There's much to explore in the region and you'll find the Murray simply beautiful.
