Travel south from the New South Wales border to sunny Nathalia on the banks of Broken Creek. Nestled between the Goulburn and Murray Rivers in Western Moira, Nathalia and the surrounding region is brimming with nature, history, art and good old fashioned country charm.
Part of Sun Country on the Murray, the Mediterranean climate makes it the perfect place for an active outdoor lifestyle. Hit the tracks and trails along Broken Creek on foot or two wheels, navigate your way through the waterways in a kayak or canoe, or head to the magnificent Barmah National Park, home to the largest river red gum forest in the world.
Take a tour through the wetlands of Barmah Forest's lakes and creeks, looking out for the 220 species of birds and 550 different types of plants in the area. To see the sights at your own pace, set off on a multi-day kayaking journey from Morgans Beach to Barmah township.
Art lovers will enjoy taking a class at the Cockatoo Island Art Retreat, with lessons available for all ages and abilities. Learn some new skills, brush up on old ones, or get involved in a community creative project.
