Luxury Holidays At The Frames

Overlooking the Murray River, the Frames offers an exclusive and unique place to stay. Generous space and exceptional levels of privacy sit side-by-side in a quintessentially Australian outback landscape, where you’ll be surrounded by the lush, natural bush and myriad birdlife that make their home on the river. The Murray River is the longest river in Australia and its lifeblood. Winding through three states it supports a diverse array of flora and fauna, including the largest River Red Gum Forest in the world. It is an ever-changing environment, creating a natural habitat for native wildlife including kangaroos, koalas and the cute but definitely not cuddly echidna. The retreats are designed with adults in mind and offer seclusion and style in a beautiful setting. In-retreat dining showcases the exceptional local produce whilst a carefully curated selection of experiences enhances any stay here. Step aboard a beautifully restored 100-year-old gondola for a sunset cruise or experience the river from a local’s perspective with a guided tour through the creeks and wetlands. Visit local vineyards, breweries and a gin distillery or get down to the water level and glide through the landscape on a kayaking tour.
