ABOUT THIS REGION The Murray River (River Murray in South Australia) is Australia's longest river. At 2,375 kilometres (1,476 mi) in length, the Murray rises in the Australian Alps, draining the western side of Australia's highest mountains and, for most of its length, meanders across Australia's inland plains, forming the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria as it flows to the northwest, before turning south for its final 500 kilometres (310 mi) or so into South Australia, reaching the ocean at Lake Alexandrina at the Murray Mouth. In Victoria, the Murray passes through the tourist towns of Corryong (home to the Man from Snowy River), Echuca, Wodonga, Swan Hill and Mildura. Tourists visit the Murray to cruise the River on Paddle Steamers or houseboats, explore pioneer history, indulge in fine food and wine amongst the citrus groves and vineyards bush walk and water ski on the local lakes and rivers.
