Lake Mulwala and its water-based activities are a focal point of the township, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to learn that this country town is also busy with festivals and events, markets and live shows. Renowned for its wonderful climate, this picturesque piece of regional New South Wales is an ‘inland aquatic paradise’ for visitors to take some time out and enjoy the stunning scenery and spectacular sunsets over the lake.


When the creation of Lake Mulwala was first discussed in 1937, the vision was not just an irrigation storage facility but a picturesque lake. While the lake wasn’t created until 1939 by the damming of the Murray River between Mulwala and its Victorian neighbour, Yarrawonga, Mulwala actually has a European history dating back to 1838. With its first hotel licensed in 1853, Mulwala began to slowly grow and expand to be the thriving holiday destination it is today.

The township has something for everyone – from tours and cruises to galleries and museums. The pace of the activities varies from low to high-energy both on and off the water. No matter what you are looking for, you’ll find it in Mulwala.

Mulwala and neighbouring Yarrawonga have extensive accommodation options for all tastes and budgets, a tantalising range of restaurants and cafes and exciting town centres for those in need of some retail therapy.

For the avid golfer or bowler, the Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort is Australia’s largest public access golf resort and offers the keen golfer or the casual player three manicured golf courses, each with their own special appeal and beautiful landscape. Magnificent bowling greens are also available at the resort, as well as accommodation, dining options and a cinema.

Mulwala is a haven for entertainment and family fun. Ski shows, family fun days and major events at the Mulwala Water Ski Club draw thousands of guests all year round.

And of course, the options are endless when it comes to enjoying time on the water. Whether it be skiing, wakeboarding, getting your adrenaline pumping on a biscuit or banana ride or taking in the views from above when you parasail, thrill seekers are well and truly catered for in Mulwala. But there is also the opportunity to relax and recharge the batteries with more passive water activities like canoeing, fishing or touring the lake on board a luxury cruise boat.

However you choose to spend your stay, we guarantee you’ll fall in love with this holiday destination.
