6 Day Safari on the Murray

There are very few wine lovers who have not sampled a drop from the Barossa Valley. Australia's best-known wine region and South Australia's most visited tourist destination is also the home of Discovery Parks - Barossa Valley. Just a few minutes from the centre of Tanunda, the park is a great place to begin your tour.

On the 4 Day Murray River Safari the houseboat is your lodge-based accommodation, moored in spectacular locations. Your bedroom room offers stunning views of the river and you can watch from your bed as pelicans fly by. In the evenings, relax in the houseboat lounge and share stories with your fellow travellers as your guides prepare a superb nightly meal.

Back in Adelaide the Majestic M Suites is a lovely hotel located just a few minutes from the spirited heart of the city and draws inspiration from the historical and aesthetic environment of North Adelaide.

4 Day Murray River Safari Itinerary
Day 1: At 11.30am meet your Murray River Safari guides who will give a brief introduction to the landscape before you board the pontoon cruiser and begin a 25km cruise upstream through old growth redgum forests and orange ochre coloured cliffs along the Murray River. Scan the tree line for koalas, parrots and waterbirds. On your luxury houseboat enjoy lunch and settle into your room before setting off on a guided walk through river country. The evening is spent on the houseboat admiring the sunset from the top deck spa or swim deck before your guides prepare a gourmet dinner paired with local wines to complete the day.

Day 2: Rise before the sun and walk a gentle slope to the rim of the Murray River valley for a spectacular sunrise. Watch the vibrant colours of the cliffs come to life along with the migratory Rainbow Bee Eaters who are nesting in them. After Breakfast, meet your canoe guide for a morning paddle through peaceful creeks and billabongs lined by mighty red gums, rafting up occasionally to drift and listen. The quiet paddling can be a great way to spot a goanna up an old gum or a

sacred kingfisher. Arriving back at the houseboat, cruise upstream to Chowilla Creek, relax and enjoy the view as lunch is prepared by your guides. After lunch explore the banks of Chowilla with a forest walk, sit quietly in search of the vulnerable Regent Parrot

Day 3: After an early breakfast, set off on a driving tour of the great ephemeral lake system on the outer floodplain where spectacular birdwatching includes migratory waders that have travelled from the northern hemisphere, thousands of ducks, black swans and their cygnets, pied stilts, red-necked avocets, spoonbills and musk ducks. Expect to see blue-bonnets and magnificent red kangaroos and perhaps a spectacular white-winged fairy-wren as we drive across country between the lakes. Return to find the houseboat in a new location opposite the spectacular Bunyip Reach Cliffs above lock 6.

Day 4: After breakfast cruise down through lock 6 and continue down to the Wilkadene Woolshed Brewery. This is the perfect time to gather your thoughts and record all your sightings and inspirations. Finish with a BBQ lunch at the brewery and say farewell to the river.
