Top 5 Ways to enjoy the High River

The environment that the ‘high river’ brings is both exciting and spectacular. The high river offers locals and tourists alike experiences not usually available such as access to areas of floodplains not normally reachable, an overall improvement to the River Murray environment plus the influx of birdlife, wildlife and the elusive yabbie. Visitors are invited to be curious and seek out the natural wonders of the Murray at this time, but most importantly visitors should be safe and seek advice before heading out on the river – whatever the vessel of choice.
