ItineraryExpand
Day 1
You will meet your guides at the Renmark Community Hotel 7.30am, where you will start your journey. Please ensure you have breakfast before departing your accommodation. Make your lunches and board the "cruiser" for a 14km creek cruise to the start of the walk. Our destination today is spectacular Headings Cliffs on the Murray River where your houseboat accommodation is moored. Discover the old horsesh lagoons that are havens for waterbirds and learn about the site of the World War II internment camp during lunch on the riverbank. Cross the little creeks that feed the red gum forests and box woodlands and gently climb the sandy cliffs covered in native pine and native lilies, rising to a magnificent view of the vast Murray River floodplain. A short transfer across the river in the cruiser and you have arrived at your destination. Distance - 10km cruising and 12km walking.
Day 2
Our destination is opposite the historic Chowilla Station Shearing Shed. Arise before the sun and walk a gentle slope to the rim of the Murray River valley for a spectacular sunrise over the valley. Marvel at the geological layers in the cliffs formed by wind, ocean, freshwater lakes and the river. Return to the houseboat for breakfast, then load your packs and depart for a wonderful day discovering Aboriginal can trees, dense red gum forests and small islands along the leafy Amazon Creek. Kangaroos and emus will interrupt you along the way as you finish in an old growth Box Forest where you’ll forage some saltbush leaves to flavour tomorrow’s breakfast. Cruise to your evening destination opposite Chowilla shearing shed. Distance - 10km cruising, 14km walking.
Day 3
Our destination is the bright red cliffs of Bunyip Reach above Lock 6. Breakfast is followed by a briefing on the Murray Darling Basin before cruising to the Chowilla Creek Environmental Regulator to learn about environmental watering and new stewardship for the river. Walk along beautiful meandering Chowilla Creek and visit the proposed site of the 1960’s Chowilla Dam. Restored wetlands and waterbirds will inspire you and after lunch we traverse Bunyip Reach cliffs and capture the beauty of this landscape on route to Queens Bend Cliffs where we celebrate completing our walking journey. We cruise home to our houseboat as the late afternoon sun illuminates the cliffs. Distance - 18km cruising, 2km walking.
Day 4
After breakfast enjoy an optional 2km self guided walk along the river,, before we all cruise together through Lock 6 and experience the fall in river level. We continue cruising downstream enjoying fresh coffee and cake for morning tea reflecting on our experience, marvelling at the riverscapes we’ve just walked along, before arriving at historic Wilkadene Woolshed and its innovative micro-brewery. Enjoy a tour with the head brewer before sitting down with your guides to a fine barbecue. After lunch we say our farewells and transfer by vehicle back to Renmark for arrival at 2.00pm. Distance - 23km cruising, 2km walking.
