Walk­ing Along Aus­tralia’s Murray River

Walking New Zealand - - Walk Talk -

A Walker’s World is of­fer­ing the Murray River Magic – one of the Great Walks of Aus­tralia. Di­rec­tor Jill Grant points out this is a four day / three night walk based on stay­ing on a house­boat on the Murray River in South Aus­tralia. ‘Walk­ing is on spe­cially re­searched routes along the river, creeks, la­goons and through an­cient red gum forests with the odd climb up the spec­tac­u­lar red cliffs ‘The birdlife is as­tound­ing and there is plenty of wildlife, such as foxes, emus, kan­ga­roos and koalas to spot,’ says Jill. ‘Af­ter walk­ing (10 to14 km per day on at ter­rain), guests re­lax on the house­boat and en­joy re­gional gourmet food and wine. Kan­ga­roo ‘Osso Bucco’ and Yab­bie Bisque are some highlights of the menus.’ The walk has ex­clu­sive ac­cess to pri­vate prop­erty and con­ser­vancy ar­eas. Groups are a max­i­mum of 10. Jill says the guides are re­mark­able in their knowl­edge of the ora and fauna, his­tory of the area and of the pre­cious ecosys­tem of the Murray River Basin. The walk will op­er­ate twice weekly May to Septem­ber next year and the all in­clu­sive cost is A$2500 share twin. It com­mences from Ren­mark, just un­der 300 km driv­ing from Ade­laide through the Ade­laide Hills and Barossa Val­ley. info@walk­world. co.nz
