The Frames is more than an accommodation, offering a range of optional experiences to guests that aim to provide you with a greater depth of understanding of the Murray River, the unique environment and the diversity of the Riverland's local produce.
These experiences have been designed to be personal and private. You will be the only people on the tour, besides your guide who knows all the best places to watch water birds and kangaroos or just admire the view.
Experience a romantic sunset cruise with sparkling wine and a cheese platter (exclusively for you) in our beautifully restored 100 year old classic wooden boat. Cruise along the Murray River that is abundant with wildlife and birds. View the spectacular sunset and the lights of Renmark as night falls.
WETLAND & WILDLIFE CRUISE
Enjoy a magical guided cruise along the Murray River in our customised dinghy.

Your local guide will take you to places on the Murray River that most people never get to see or experience. Included is morning tea, a gourmet hot lunch around a campfire (seasonal dependant) and refreshments. This tour, like our other experiences can be completely customised to your needs.
