One of the more prominent destinations in the state of South Australia, Murray River stretches all the way from the border of New South Wales, across the entire state of Victoria, and ends with its mouth at South Australia close to Adelaide. A popular location for water-based activities like boating, canoeing, fishing and going on river cruises, the river’s waters are pretty placid most of the time. While it isn’t quite as wide or broad as the Mississippi or Missouri, it does evoke that sense of riverine adventure with Huckleberry Finn and Tom Sawyer floating along on an old-style river boat.
First, a fond farewell to Kingston SE and Larry the Humungous Lobster.
A shot along the river close to where the delta is (ie where it connects to the sea).
An old steam train that has taken on a second lease of life as a tourist’s photo opportunity.
Rustic scene by the river, where you can see a happy wife, exploring son, outboard motor boat, deck chairs, and a powerboat in the distance.
A closer view of the powerboat – just perfect for lazing in the Sun, fishing, or swimming if you so desire.
As in most stop-overs, a playground is here to keep little ones entertained. In this case, my wife decided to join in the fun.
Nothing like pies to fill those hungry tummies after a morning’s peaceful stroll.
