The Mighty Murray is more than a river and state border, it is a place where people gather, celebrate, and share in life. A place to explore and push your limits. A place to relax and take in the beauty nature beholds.
On the banks
The lush green banks of Noreuil Park offer a cooling oasis on a summer’s day, as you stretch out sheltered by the overhead gum canopy. Take a refreshing dip in the river, play on the playground, or throw in a line and try catching yourself a famous Murray Cod. When the stomach rumble hits just grab a spot and start unpacking your picnic basket or fire up one of the barbeques. A whole day could be spent at Noreuil Park simply enjoying the Murray River.
Wanting to spend a night on the banks of the Murray? Head to Richardson’s Bend for free riverside camping.
On the water
Feel the power and beauty of the Murray River on a guided canoeing adventure with the instructors at Murray River Canoe Hire or set out on your own in one of their canoes. Take in the nature around you while balancing atop a stand-up paddleboard from Paddle Tribe.
The Wagirra Trail is a stunning 8.5km walking/riding track that follows the bends of the Murray River from Wonga Wetlands to Union Bridge, South Albury. Along a section of this trail you will find sculptures created by local Aboriginal artists, known as the Yindyamarra Sculpture Walk. A mesmerising collection that tells the story of Aboriginal history and the cultural significance of the Murray River.
Connecting to the Wagirra Trail is the Gateway Island and Belvoir Park Trail, taking you along the banks of the Murray River in Wodonga to Belvoir Park Lake. While meandering along this picturesque trail make sure to stop in at Gateway Village arts and culture precinct.
