Lake or River

You might think Australia is dry – and you’d be right – but away from the coast there’s a treasure trove of river and lake holiday destinations just waiting to be discovered. Choose from winding rivers, coastal and inland lakes, outback watering holes and tropical springs – no matter how you like to enjoy the water there’s a river holiday or a lake holiday for you! 

Get lost along the picturesque stretches of the might Murray River with its towering gums and friendly river towns, or explore the rolling hills and lakes of Victoria’s Gippsland region, where you’ll be forgiven for thinking you’ve arrived in the European countryside. Head to Margaret River to sample their world-class cabernet, or make like Banjo Patterson’s famous ‘Man From Snowy River’ with a trip to the Snowy Mountains 

G’day Parks make it easy to holiday by the water with a selection of parks in some of the country’s favourite river or lake holiday destinations. Whether you’re making a splash with the whole family, planning a romantic getaway or a fun trip with friends, the beautiful scenery and peaceful waters will soon have you asking ‘how’s the serenity?’ G’day parks by lakes and rivers are a water lovers dream, with great fishing and calm waters perfect for skiing, wakeboarding and swimming. Take a guided river cruise on a historic paddle steamer or explore the waterways in your own boat or kayak, and settle in at the end of the day to your choice of waterfront camping and riverview cabins.
