An adventure lover's paradise, Corryong is a popular destination for rock climbing, rafting, horse riding, and a breathtaking natural environment for bushwalks, 4WD tours, cycling and fishing.
My side of the mountain
Tackle the challenging rapids of the Murray River then relax with something more gentle like raft fishing or a 'family float' trip. While away an afternoon fly-fishing for trout, try your luck at catching the legendary Murray cod at Wawa and Interlard, or take the short walk to the tumbling cascades of Cudgewa Bluff Falls in Burrowa-Pine Mountain National Park.
Rather hit the greens to work on your putting? Enjoy a slow afternoon on the nine hole course at the Corryong Sporting Complex and then reward your efforts with a cool brew.
Corryong is famous as the final resting place of Jack Riley, considered by many to be the inspiration for the hero in Banjo Paterson's poem The Man from Snowy River. Visit Jack Riley's grave at the Corryong Cemetery or learn more about the legend at The Man from Snowy River Folk Museum.
For some unforgettable high country action, visit Corryong in April when The Man from Snowy River Bush Festival is held. Watch a field of riders perform incredible feats in the legendary The Man from Snowy River Challenge then wander through the open-air market listening to storytellers, bands and folk singers.
Call in to the 150-year-old pub at Tintaldra, a favourite stopover for vintage car and motorcycle touring groups, visit the historic Tintaldra Store built in 1864, or stop by the oldest racecourse grandstand in the state, as featured in the film Phar Lap, at the Towong Turf Club.
Things to do
There's no better way to connect with the river than to be in it. Enjoy the rush of white water or slow down with a serene ride in a flooded forest.
A mountain stream in its upper reaches, the river turns into a meandering river lined with magnificent forests of red gum and sandy beaches.
Ready your pack and set off to the top of Victoria's highest peaks for challenging terrain and breathtaking views over stunning alpine landscapes.
