Overview
More
Operating from Renmark, guided walking combined with peaceful cruising immerses guests in the landscape and reveals the pioneering history of paddle steamers and a new environmental stewardship. Guests encounter diverse wildlife and waterbirds along the river, creeks and old oxbow lagoons that meander through ancient redgum forests dwarfed by spectacular red ochre cliffs. Three of the four days are spent walking on private property and conservancy areas with exclusive access. Guests spend three nights on unique houseboat accommodation that cruises to the daily walking destination. Nightly, their guides prepare three course dinners created from local food and wine, showcasing the produce of the Riverland. The final day offers the opportunity to cruise the river, go through a Lock and reach the state border. Winner of the 2017 South Australian Tourism Awards 'Ecotourism' Category
