Australia Murray River
When the Europeans arrived and started colonizing the continent, steamboats became the dominant means of transportation. Some steamboats were mainly used to transport goods while others were used as ferry boats, transporting people.
However, when railway systems were established, river transport began to decline. Currently, the river is not anymore used as a major transportation system. It is now being used mostly for recreational purposes. Murray is now a major tourist attraction.
Murray has become a popular holiday destination for both domestic and foreign tourists. The idyllic sights of the river and the surrounding areas are perfect for relaxation. Vacationers can spend days and simply do nothing but unwind and have fun. Luxury houseboats are among the most popular accommodations that can be rented.
They serve the dual function of shelter and transportation in the river.
Various businesses are offering recreational activities for vacationers along the Murray. These range from water sports to social activities. Vacationers can choose from a wide range of attractions and activities, from historic walks to modern-day entertainment centers. Visitors can also go shopping or simply commune with nature.
Golf clubs, restaurants, amusement centers, hotels, and resorts are within convenient reach along the Murray. Some people, however, prefer the peaceful ambience of pleasure cruise in the river.
