Enjoy paddle-steamer cruises, water sports, delicious markets and superb golf in the twin towns of Mulwala and Yarrawonga, on the Murray River and three hours’ drive from Melbourne. Ghostly river red gums in Lake Mulwala are a beautiful backdrop for fishing, boating, waterskiing and kayaking.

With many wonderful things to do and see, a great way to experience the spectacular beauty of the area is on paddle-steamer PS Cumberoona and riverboat MV Paradise Queen. Alternatively, you can captain a River of Islands houseboat and glide along the magnificent waterways at your own leisure.

Kayaking - Mulwala - The Murray

Water sports are popular and Mulwala Water Ski Club offers a range of fun activities, from banana and tube rides to waterskiing and wakeboarding lessons for beginners. Fishing and boating are drawcards too, with Lake Mulwala one of Australia’s premier fishing spots for native Murray cod.

Swap a fishing rod for a golf club and play a round or two at Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort, which has three splendid courses and 45 holes in total. Redgolf Murray River Golf Trips can tailor a tour that combines playing on championship courses with delicious food and wine experiences.

Fishing, Mulwala

You can taste local produce and wines at the Royal Mail Hotel in Mulwala, on the northern side of the border. For olive oil, travel over the weir to the Rich Glen Olive Estate in Yarrawonga. A vibrant events calendar includes Yamaha Cod Classic, an agricultural show and a monthly farmers market.

The heritage-listed Byramine Homestead, built in 1842, is home to a brewery, winery and cellar door. You’ll discover more fascinating heritage in the Pioneer Museum. On both sides of the river are waterside accommodation options, from camping and caravanning to apartments and resorts.
