South Australia's Murray Riverland is one of the most relaxing holidays you can take and the Riverland[1] is the stretch of the Murray River that winds its way from the South Australia-Victoria-NSW meeting point and winds its way westward until it reaches the town of Morgan, where it turns south, toward the Southern Ocean. The Riverland contains some of South Australia's best canoeing and kayaking backwaters and is superb for houseboat holidays. The River Murray is at the heart and soul of this South Australian community and the Riverland has become the food bowl of South Australia, producing an amazing aray of fresh fruit and vegetables and much of the wine that South Australia is so famous for.
