Murray River Ecology
The Murray River ecology boat tour takes students on a guided exploration of the local river environment.
Travel is in a specifically designed tour boat constructed by Alufarm Marine in Goolwa, and with an annual survey by the Department of Transport, Marine Safety Division, approved life jackets for all passengers and experienced operators with appropriate Murray River & Inland Waters certificates of competency, this is a safe, educational and eye-opening way to see the Murray.
Along the way students drive the boat, learn about the pre-European River, see how the river was regulated post-settlement and hear about the present river management systems. They also get the chance to spot the wide-range of river birds and fish and visit a historic Aboriginal midden.
