The award recognises the outstanding this incredible creation as well as the guiding team whose passion for the Murray River is shared with guests throughout the 4 day journey.
The Murray River Walk team are so thankful to everyone who has enabled their early business success and are looking forward to contesting their 2018 silver award in the category of ‘Best Ecotourism experiences in Australia’ at the Australian Tourism Awards in Launceston, Tasmania in February 2019.
