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.
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 at anytime and turn back if you don’t feel like the full walk.
