Murray River Walk, the 10th member of Great Walks of Australia, has won the South Australian Tourism Award for Ecotourism after completing only its second season of guided walks along the spectacular Murray River.
Launched in 2016 to enable walkers to experience the magic of the Murray River, Managing Director Tony Sharley said it has been his lifelong mission to help people discover the beauty of the Murray River, its stories, food and wine and new stewardship. This award recognition is validation that we are winning for the river and its communities, celebrating our nature and diversifying the river economy.
Mr Sharley thanked Great Walks of Australia for the privilege to be a member of a group of the most outstanding multi-day walks in Australia. He thanked the MRW Guiding Team whose passion for South Australia, the Riverland and the Murray River helps to create the magical 4 day and 3 night walking experience along Australia’s mightiest river.

Mr Sharley acknowledged that “feedback and advocacy from everyone who has walked with us, has continued to enthuse our team and refine our experience. The Award is a great honour, great recognition for us and validation that Australia has fabulous and iconic natural areas including the Murray River, and outstanding ecotourism experiences that celebrate these areas.”

Murray River Walk offers 4 days and 3 nights guided walking in the Riverland Wetland of International Importance above Renmark, walking a distance of 40km (12 to 14 km each day) and cruising more than 70 km. Guests of the walk enjoy unique overnight accommodation on a modern 10 berth houseboat that moves to each day’s new walking destination.
