Thanks to those that make this possible!

This initiative has evolved from the original Darling River Run tourism website that I developed, a resource that was abandoned by local, regional, and state tourism.

Knowing the importance of this online resource, I was determined to keep it going.

Having worked across the region for the last ten years as well as several roles within lifestyle media, I have gained an insight into what the travelling public wants and what the Murray-Darling basin can offer. To that end, I invited some in-region stakeholders to partner with the initiative.

There is still a LOT of work to be done, and I would like to thank our partners.
