It’s only natural that as a pet owner you want to take the whole family when you travel. The Corowa Region makes planning a holiday with furry friends easy with a selection of pet friendly accommodation and attractions available to choose from.  With designated off leash areas and pet friendly camps and parks, your pooch will be begging you stay just a little longer. 


Leave Your Leash and Run Free 

The Corowa Region has a number of great spots to take your dogs for a run. Take a walk to the Ball Park Precinct at the end of Sanger Street in Corowa and let the dogs have a run in the designated off leash area near the Corowa Lawn Tennis Courts. 

Take in the river views and wander down to the corner of River Street and Federation Ave in South Corowa. Here the off leash area allows you to let dogs explore amongst the gum trees that skirt the beautiful grassed area.

If you are heading towards Mulwala, Kyffins Reserve is a great place to free camp for the night or stop to let your pet stretch their legs. The beautiful lake front reserve joins a walking trail that takes you into Mulwala and a number of the delightful lake side parks.

Howlong’s main sporting complex, Lowe Square has a special designated dog off leash area in the south west corner. There is plenty of room for you pets to run around and explore.


Corowa Whisky & Chocolate

We all know that dogs shouldn’t indulge on chocolate or whisky for that matter. But it certainly doesn’t mean that their needs won’t be taken care of at the Corowa Whisky and Chocolate Factory. Your furry friends are welcome to join you in the outdoor areas around the factory. These guys love pets so much they even have own, with three highland cows and a number goats are waiting to greet you on our next visit.

Lake Mulwala was created in 1939 when the Murray River was dammed at the Yarrawonga Weir as part of the Murray-Darling Irrigation Scheme. Prior to this paddle steamers would traverse the Murray as far away as Albury to transport a wide range of general merchandise, including timber, wheat and wool. This river traffic slowly petered out with the arrival of the railway in 1886.


In 1842, explorer Hamilton Hume assisted his sister-in-law, Elizabeth Hume to form the ‘Yarrawonga Run’.
Built on a sand hill by a lagoon near the Murray River, Elizabeth was the first European to live in north east Victoria. She moved to the area with her nine children, after her husband John Hume was killed by bushrangers in Gunning. Elizabeth named her home ‘Byramine’, meaning ‘rustic retreat’. The design of the house is unique, due to the octagonal central room, or ‘the fortress’, which ensured a clear view out all windows, in case of attack. The homestead remains in its original condition, and is open to the public.


The Yarrawonga Weir was built to raise the water level in the Murray River to ensure diversion of water via gravity. Diversion of water is via two major channels, the Mulwala Canal and the Yarrawonga Main Channel. The Mulwala Canal is 2,880 kilometres long and is the largest irrigation canal in the southern hemisphere, spreading across the southern Riverina plain to Deniliquin and suppling water to 700,000 hectares. The Yarrawonga Main Channel is 957km long and services the Murray Valley irrigation region, from Yarrawonga to Barmah. It supplies water to 128,000 hectares.


Lake Mulwala Facts
Storage capacity = 117,500 mega litres (1/4 of Sydney Harbour)
Area = 4,450 hectares
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.
