Creator Shane Strudwick from Discover Murray describes the app and its capabilities… “The Murray River App is like a handheld visitor centre taking you along our great river from Man from Snowy River country and Kosciusko National Park near Corryong, Victoria and New South Wales, to Storm Boy’s Coorong estuaries near Goolwa and the Murray Mouth in South Australia. The Discover Murray River Trail is a very popular, great Australian drive and part of our vision is to share with visitors all the wonderful things to see and do along the whole river while creating appreciation and increasing visitation to our magical river”.
Once visitors arrive in any of the Murray River towns featured on the app, they’ll be able to choose from accommodation, houseboats, river cruises, restaurants, attractions, clubs and pubs, golf, wineries, events and more. With dynamic maps, the comprehensive town facilities display picnic spots, playgrounds, BBQ’s, boat ramps and more, showing visitors the best of the each communities’ environment. It’s perfect for visitors who are new to the region and love to explore”.
Some of the App’s special features and information include:
• Locations of all visitor information centres, RV dump points and public toilets
• Lock and Weir information and contact phone numbers
• Fruit Fly information and Weather
• Dynamic and Live River data links
• “Near Me” recognises your location and shows nearby clubs and dump points.
