We will remember them… They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
Our ‘Mighty Murray Drive’ is over and we have had one amazing time.
There is certainly something special about ‘The Mighty Murray’- the beautiful ‘River Red Gums’, the friendly people, the gorgeous river towns dotted along the way, and so many amazing free river camps.
I really hope you have enjoyed our journey as much as we did…we can’t recommend this drive enough!
This blog is currently being updated… don’t go away, we will be back very soon!
The mighty and ancient Murray River has shown us her many colours and moods as we have followed her west to Echuca but our journey does not end here.
Come with us as we journey along the banks of Australia’s longest river and explore and experience its lasting beauty.

This was ‘Bushranger country – an area where, in the late 1800s, infamous outlaws took shelter because of the denseness of the woodland and the difficulty for authorities to traverse the hilly terrain.
Ned Kelly had strong links to the region and Harry Powers made his hide out in the surrounding hills.
If you are looking for somewhere to visit in Victoria, the Victorian High Country is up there with the best; the 4WDing was exciting yet not too extreme, the free camping was amazing, the creeks were crystal clear, there was plenty of firewood for campfires, and there was something to see at every turn… be it a breathtaking view or an historic hut.
