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.
