Stay and play

The range of accommodation in the Murray River, Lakes and Coorong is as diverse as the region itself. Accommodation options abound. Whether you’re travelling with the family, or flying solo, you’re sure to find a place to stay that suits your needs and budget.


With great weather and so much open space, camping and caravanning are especially popular. On the other end of the spectrum, Paringa is home to The Frames, offering ultra-luxurious private residences, each exquisitely tailored.


If you’d prefer four walls and a roof, you’ll be spoilt for choice. You’ll find traditional motels with country hospitality, cottages and bed and breakfasts. You can even stay in an historic courthouse or pub. If you want to live like a local, stay at one of the many shacks and boathouses that line the river.

Experience the Murray River on a houseboat – a floating holiday home that can accommodate two people to large groups. Many houseboats resemble five-star hotels with Jacuzzis, ducted air conditioning, dishwashers, king-size beds and sun decks. You can even hire a private chef to cook for you. Costs and availability vary each season, so make sure you book in advance.
