Exploring with Murraylands Trails
There are a number of trails that have been created for visitors to the Murraylands Region to help you navigate around and see & experience our amazing spot on the river. There’s something for everyone, Bike trails, canoe/kayak trails, driving trails and more! Here’s 3 we recommend you start with:
1) Self Drive eco tour – this tour starts at the Mannum Visitor Information Centre, takes you through the Shearer Factory, Riverpak, River Murray Forest, Mannum Falls, and more, before arriving back to the Mannum Visitor Centre. This Drive Tour could take a good part of the day up, but you can rest assured you are seeing the best of the region.
For more information on this Trail, visit http://www.murrayriver.com.au/mannum/mid-murray-self-drive-eco-tour/
2) Canoe/Kayak Trails – there are a number of trails that have been mapped out but one we love is the Murray Bridge Canoe Trail. This one is great because you aren’t too far away from Murray Bridge, but far enough away to enjoy the peace and tranquillity. You launching at Sturt Reserve just by the Murray Bridge Rowing Club, paddle upstream past Captain Proud, this where rail meets the river at the Murray Bridge Wharf and the rich history of Murray Bridge is waiting to be explored!

3) Bike Trails – There’s nothing better than being on a bike in the fresh air, enjoying the scenery, which is why we recommend taking a Bike Trail!
There are a few different Trails you can take, depending on your skill level and the length of time you have available. You can check out all the information here à http://www.visitmurraylands.com/html/cycle-it-trails.html. Don’t forget safety, water, and maps In case you get lost!
