THE MAGIC CARPET A Murray River Odyssey

Rex Ellis is Australia’s longest operating safari guide.

There are good flows in the Murray River and so he is resurrecting his magnificent Murray Raft tour…small parties drift down a lazy river on a large 21 foot raft. It has a canopy and a carpet beneath your feet and comfy deck chair seating with plenty of room to move around. A large inflatable boat is towed behind to help push the raft around bends and into shore to explore and visit the wetlands where the birdlife s exceptional, plus other on shore attractions.

His campsites are among the best in Australia with campfire cooked meals and quality wines.

Moving at a gentle 3-4 kilometres an hour the scenery is ever changing.

Enjoy the sounds of silence apart from bird calls and an occasional boat.  

Two or three staff accompany parties of seven. 

Transfer by 4WD to and from Mildura or Adelaide included in the price – $2.250.00 per person.

A world class adventure!

12 fabulous days ex Adelaide following the Warburton River to Lake Eyre!

There is an out of season rise in the Diamantina River which presents the opportunity for several eight bay boat safaris this year.

This will be Rex’s last year of operation, and this will probably be the last commercial operation on this river.
