Murray River

Corowa 2646

Australia’s iconic Murray River is right on our doorstep, flowing past the historic village of Wahgunyah and minutes from Rutherglen and many of our famous wineries. Popular for camping, hiking, bike riding and water sports, you are bound to find something that you will love.

The Murray River can be enjoyed by boat – enjoy waterskiing and rowing, or simply drifting with the current. There are plenty of swimming holes, with The Willows in Wahgunyah and The Lagoon in Corowa popular with families.  The Willow is the most common tree along the Murray,  perfect for relaxing on a warm day in the shade of these magnificent trees.

There are walking and cycling trails along the river, as well as plenty of picturesque locations ideal for camping, or simply to bring the family for a picnic.

The Murray River offers a vast array of fish, although most come to snap up the legendary Murray Cod, with the season’s opening weekend an annual pilgrimage for many. Large populations of trout can be found in the Murray River near Yarrawonga and The Ovens and Goulburn Rivers. You can also find Bream, Perch and Redfin swimming in the Murray.
