The Murray

The iconic Murray River meanders between the two cities of Albury and Wodonga. Flowing through river red gum forests, wetlands teeming with birdlife, rich agricultural land and busy river towns, the Murray was originally a vital transport system linking the inland to the coast.

Offering an abundance of water sports and activities, enjoy fishing, paddle steamer cruises, houseboats, fruit picking and swimming. Visit Albury Wodonga for its thriving art scene, heritage buildings, parks and shopping. Or the nearby town of Corowa with one of Australia's finest collections of intact federation style buildings.

Play golf at one of the quality courses, explore the surrounding national and state parks or bask on the shores of Lake Mulwala.

The first duck across the line wins you $10,00 cash, second place wins $600 - there are prizes right down to sixth place.

Tickets will be on sale from the 3rd December 2016 right up until the start of the race.

Prior to the duck race, there will be an emergency services raft race at 1.15 p.m. The festivities continue with local emergency services challenging each other to a raft race, with three teams of five people ferrying each other across the river on home-made rafts.

Shakespeare in the Settlement 'Much Ado About Nothing'


'Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.'

After victory in battle, Don Pedro leads his soldiers, including the dashing Claudio and the clever wordsmith Benedict, to the home of Leonato. The soldiers are greeted warmly by Leonato and his charming daughter Hero and consequently invited to stay. Leonato's witty niece Beatrice engages in a merry war of words with Benedict both proclaiming their scorn for love, marriage and each other. In contrast, Claudio and Hero meeting for the first time, are instantly love struck and are quickly betrothed.

However the bastard brother of Don Pedro, Don John, devises a meddling plan to mess with the unfolding romance. Lovers are deceived and happiness is threatened. Dogberry and Verges, the comical night watchmen, appear just in time, ensuring that good will defeat all evil.

'Much Ado About Nothing' is a timeless tale of two pairs of lovers - and the people who want them to be together, and the people who try to rip them apart.

Under the setting sun, Essential Theatre and Swan Hill Performing Arts invite you to relax in the grounds of the Swan Hill Pioneer Settlement and join in the delight of this colourful and charming comedy
