It starts as a trickle in the High Country of the Snowy Mountains and swells into a broad, snaking watercourse forming the boundary between Victoria and New South Wales, before eventually emptying into the ocean at Encounter Bay in South Australia. Along the way it feeds one of the country's most bountiful agricultural regions and the world's largest River Red Gum forests. You might think of the river itself as a cool place for fishing, camping and watersports, but the Murray region's riches run much deeper than that. Gourmet traveller? Dip into sensational food and wine country around Mildura, Swan Hill, Echuca, Yarrawonga, Albury and many other towns, where you can scour the farmers' markets and savour the cellar doors – this is, after all, Australia's abundant food bowl.
