Corowa

Corowa, a classic Murray River country town, has all the makings for a holiday that will leave lasting memories. Soak up the mild Mediterranean weather and sample local gourmet food and wine. Learn about the nation's history and leap into an adventure-filled holiday, full of water-based fun and adrenalin-charged sports like skydiving and gliding.

Up, down and around
Experience the rush of skydiving from 12,000 feet up or gliding in a light aircraft from the Corowa or Tocumwal aerodromes, where perfect thermals create idea conditions for unpowered flights. Prefer water sports? Take your pick of waterskiing, boating and swimming at the Corowa Lagoon.

If a slower pace is more your cup of tea, play a round at Corowa Golf Club's 27-hole championship course or tee off at the Howlong Country Golf Club's more challenging 18-hole course.

Unwind and recharge with the family with a picnic on the riverbank and ride or walk along local trails to get a glimpse of native fauna and flora. Pitch a tent by the river with the majestic River Red Gum Forest as a natural backdrop, or bring your caravan into powered sites at the town's popular holiday parks.

Birthplace of Federation
Explore Corowa's rich heritage on a walk around the town's heritage buildings. See the old railway station and Oddfellows Hall – the site of the 1893 Federation Conference that paved the way to Australian federation. Browse the collection at the Federation Museum, and don't miss the National Federation Festival on the Australia Day weekend to celebrate Corowa's claim to fame.

Foodie heaven
The Corowa-Wahgunyah and Howlong region is famous for its fine food and wine producers. Book a winery tour in Corowa or nearby Mildura and Echuca, or drive out across the river to Rutherglen to sample the region's signature full-bodied reds and fortified wines. Treat your sweet tooth at the Corowa Whisky & Chocolate Factory, a former flour mill that now produces handmade Belgian-style chocolates and is developing a whisky distillery.
