The Murray is a great river and the lifeline of South Australia. It is pretty much our only water source (apart from rainwater tanks in the back yard)
Here are some pics of the river. There are houses and shacks along the river. (Houses are permanent dwellings, shacks are used as holiday homes and not lived in permanently
The river is becoming overrun by willow trees along the banks. While they look very pretty, they are considered a pest as they are detrimental to the river.
There are many areas where there cliffs which are really great for fishing, as many fish live around and under the crags.
There are also many places where you can moor, either overnight or just for a short while and go for a walk. There are lots of wildlife on the walks from rabbits to kangaroos and bird life.
And of course, pelicans. It's amazing to watch the pelicans fish for food. They seem to know exactly where the fish are (without using a fish finder!) and often surface with 2 or more fish in their bills.
