Barmah

Visit the largest red gum forest in the world in Barmah, the only Victorian town north of the Murray River. Alive with legendary river stories, the local forest, wetlands and waterways are ideal starting points for your own stories.

Back to nature

Take the opportunity to connect with nature as you camp under the stars by the river, paddle downstream in a canoe, or spend a few days bushwalking through changing landscapes. Part of Sun Country on the Murray, Barmah boasts a temperate Mediterranean climate all year round making it the ideal town for outdoor lovers. Anglers will find plenty of quiet spots to cast a line in the river.

Heritage-listed Barmah National Park is home to trees over 500 years old and up to 30 metres high. The forest ecosystem, connected to the flooding regime of the Murray River, teems with native wildlife including 220 species of birds and some 550 types of plants.

Discover the region's fascinating history at Nathalia's Barmah Forest Heritage and Education Centre, which showcases stories from Aboriginal occupation to pioneering cattlemen and timber workers.
