Day 1 Renmark to Headings Cliffs
Meet your guide early this morning at the Renmark Hotel to depart for The Murray River. Board a small pontoon boat to transfer to the houseboat, your home for the next three nights and cruise 14km along the river to Woolenook Bend to start your walk. Discover the old horseshoe lagoons that are havens for waterbirds, learn of the WWII internment camp on the banks of the river over lunch and cross the little creeks that feed the red gum forest to reach a fabulous viewpoint of the vast Murray River floodplain. Enjoy an evening at leisure aboard the houseboat and sit down to a delicious 3-course dinner paired with local wines before settling down for the night.
Day 2 Headings Cliffs to Chowilla Creek
Rise early to catch the magnificent sunrise over the Murray River valley and admire the geological layers in the cliffs as the morning lights bathes them. After breakfast, set off to explore the Aboriginal canoe trees, dense red gum forests and small islands along the leafy Amazon creek possibly with kangaroos and emus as companions along the way. Return to the houseboat and travel up river to the Chowilla Shearing Shed and enjoy another evening perhaps enjoying some nibbles around a campfire or soaking in the hot tub on the top deck.
Day 3 Chowilla Creek to Queen’s Bend Cliffs
Enjoy a leisurely breakfast before you cruise to the Chowilla Creek Environmental Regulator to learn about the new stewardship for the river. Start today’s walk meandering the beautiful Chowilla Creek admiring the restored wetlands, before traversing Bunyip Reach Cliffs to Queens Bend Cliffs to celebrate the end of a spectacular walking journey. Spend the evening cruising the river and head back to the housboat as the late afternoon sun illuminates the cliffs.
Day 4 Queen’s Bend Cliffs to Renmark
Choose to spend the morning relaxing on the river bank or perhaps embark on an unguided 2km walk along the river, before cruising through Lock 6 to experience the fall in river level. Continue downstream enjoying morning tea as you marvel at the riverscapes before arriving at historic Wilkadene Woolshed micro-brewery. Enjoy a tour with the head brewer and a barbecue lunch before returning to Renmark in the afternoon.
