Three walkers looking at the scenery on the Murray River Trail
  • $188,541
    Invested
    • Murray River Trails, one of the Great Walks of Australia, will receive almost $190,000 in funding for a $628,470 luxury houseboat build under the Tourism Industry Development Fund.
    • The houseboat will be used for small group tours, who take part in the Murray River Trails multi-day experience, providing overnight accommodation. It will also be available for hire by independent travellers outside of peak walking tour times.
    • Houseboat holidays are synonymous with the Riverland. The experience that Murray River Trails will be able to offer visitors will help create more demand for the region which will create more jobs and benefit many other businesses in the area.
    • Murray River Trails relies on 60 different local suppliers to provide everything from food, wine, groceries and fuel. The flow-on effects of this funding will be felt in the wider community.
