THE GREAT OUTDOORS

    The great outdoors is yours to explore when you visit the Corowa region!

    When it comes to enjoying some fresh air and all that nature has to offer, this magical little stretch of the Murray might be just the peaceful getaway you’ve been looking for.

     

    With three spectacular golf courses all within an hour’s drive of each other, you’re spoilt for choice if you love a hit.

    Enjoy fishing, kayaking or a bit of a spin on the water skis? The mighty Murray River and picturesque Lake Mulwala are both fantastic options for a huge range of water sports and have a long history as popular destinations for lovers of all things aquatic. If you’re patient, you might just hook a famous Murray cod!

    With easy to ride flat terrain, cycling is a great option for people of all ages. A rail trail connects Rutherglen to Corowa via Wahgunyah past paddocks, vineyards, groves and old wineries. Riding trails along the Murray River and through townships are a fun way to take in the beautiful scenery and discover all this region has to offer. Bike hire (adults and kids bikes) is available from the Corowa Visitor Information Centre.

    For those who like the pace of their outdoor activities to be a bit slower, bird watching is a fantastic way to spend some time near our gorgeous river and lake. There is a huge range of native birds living in the area including swans, pelicans, eagles, kingfishers and more. Drop into one of the Visitor Information Centres to find out where the best bird watching is happening.


    Or take a walk around the circuit which surrounds the Urana Aquatic Centre, complete with outdoor gym equipment for those who like to keep fit during their stay! 

    So no matter how you like to enjoy the great outdoors, there is something for everyone when you stay in the Corowa region.

     

    Length = 489 metres
    Distance from Murray source = 528 km
    Distance from Murray mouth = 1,992 km
    Full supply above river bed = 14.2 metres
    Full supply above sea level = 124.9 metres

     

    Lake Mulwala still provides a critical role in the supply of irrigation water and it remains the largest single diversion point for irrigation water on the entire Murray River. However, the lake is now much more than simple water storage, and it has transformed the twin towns of Yarrawonga and Mulwala into very popular holiday destinations with a booming tourism industry. The lake is a recreational haven for a myriad of water-based activities including water skiing, wakeboarding, boating, fishing, swimming, sailing and wind surfing.

     

    Boating

    Tour the Murray and Lake Mulwala on a traditional riverboat or hire a pontoon BBQ boat. You could launch your kayak or hire a canoe on the Lake and take the kids out for a leisurely paddle.
