Barham sits on the Murray River and forms the commercial centre for the area's rich tourist and agricultural industries. It was once an important river centre for the busy steamer trade that occurred on the great Murray River. Many paddle steamers and barges were built from locally milled Red Gum.
Surrounding Barham is the Barmah Forest Wetlands, internationally recognised as one of the ten most important wetlands in the Murray-Darling Basin.
Barham: Where To Go / Sightseeing
Barham Bridge over Murray River
The Murray around Barham was settled by graziers, mainly from Victoria, in the 1840s. By 1850 all the really desirable water-frontages on both sides of the Murray had been taken up as far upstream as Barham while the open plain to the north in New South Wales was only notionally divided into undeveloped backblocks. Barham station itself had a 32 kilometre frontage on the Murray, carrying a modest head of cattle in the mid Victorian period under a series of owners. With similar developments on the Loddon River, which converges with the Murray north of Barham, a crossing of the Murray was needed and a ferry was provided for stock and people.
