A host of attractions are scattered throughout this region, and as you'll quickly discover it is easy to be gripped by the historical Murray River.
Taking a tranquil paddle steamer ride is a quintessential Murray experience. Head to Echuca-Moama – the historical Port of Echuca continues to bustle with paddle steamers dominating the waterways. Yarrawonga-Mulwala, Mildura and Swan Hill are also great launch points.
National parks and state forests in the Murray region suit strolls. Millewa Forest combines with Barmah National Park to form the world’s largest River Red gum forest. Or visit the Blowhole Reserve near Tocumwal to see a natural phenomenon.
Corowa is regarded as the Birthplace of Federation; a visit to the Corowa Federation Museum provides a thorough understanding of why. A wander around town presents a tangible reminder of the past by way of striking heritage buildings.

Structures don’t come more impressive than the historical Albury Railway Station, one of many grand old buildings in this thriving city. The Albury Library Museum also retraces the past and the Albury Regional Art Gallery is a leading cultural attraction.
