Tour Description

The Mighty Murray

Supporting Murray River Communities.

Wednesday 18th, Thursday 19th or Friday 20th January 2023

McLaren Vale pick-up Thursday 19th January only

Cost: $99

The extraordinary rainfall along the eastern seaboard leading to a dramatic rise in water levels of the River Murray has been in the news for several months now. With the peak expected to occur in riverine communities during January, it is anticipated that water levels will not exceed that of 1956 (the largest flood on SA record) but will be higher than the three other River Murray floods recorded in SA history, making this a significant natural event. Our drive follows the course of the river, stopping at various lookouts and vantage points to safely view the ecological splendour of the mighty Murray in flood. With the river being the lifeblood for many regional communities, it’s important we provide our support, stopping for lunch at Mannum, as well as visiting Wellington, Murray Bridge and Jervois. There will be time to browse the local shops along the way.

Help us support SA communities on our January day tour.

We expect to start set-downs in Goolwa at approximately 4.30pm, finishing in Encounter Bay around 5:20pm.
