In a wine region blessed with abundant sunshine and long languid summers, a stroll along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail from Rutherglen to the banks of the mighty Murray River is a charm. Once the Rutherglen to Wahgunyah railway line, enjoy this leisurely walk where you can view vineyards, olive trees and cereal crops, along with the odd mob of sheep and alpacas. Stop in and sample wines from some of Australia’s oldest wineries and vines. A perfect full day activity before settling back in your cottage with a local red. Set out early in the height of summer.
This is 9km one way so stop and turn back if you don’t feel like the full walk.
