RIVER MURRAY MAPS

The river played an important role in the settlement of South Australia. It has a long history as a vital trade route and a source of water for irrigation communities. Check the River Murray Maps below:

BEWARE OF THE FRUIT FLY

Enjoy the convenience of Riverglen Marina being the closest SA hire/drive marina to Adelaide or Melbourne. There have been significant changes in the SA fruit fly legislation, so there will be fines if you bring any fruit onto houseboats from Mannum to Renmark. Review the document below for more information:

WASTE DISPOSAL STATIONS

Houseboat hirers produce three types of waste – toilet waste (black water), greywater and garbage. Toilet waste is of special concern, particularly when linked with the mobility of river vessels. There is a real danger that a toilet onboard a vessel may be flushed into the River Murray. Check the list of waste disposal stations below:

MOORING LOCATIONS

Houseboats are a classic and enjoyable way to enjoy the Murray River’s natural beauty. Houseboats can anchor at any of the Council’s permitted mooring locations for up to 48 hours. Those who desire to moor for more than 48 hours must get a permit from the Council.

HOW TO NAVIGATE NATUREMAPS

The Department of Environment and Water has launched a project called NatureMaps. NatureMaps’ mission is to aid in the management of the state’s natural resources. Through the exploration of maps and geographic characteristics, it offers access to a vast range of information regarding South Australia’s natural resources.
