The Murray is host to exciting events throughout the year. Join the fun of music and food and wine festivals, sporting events and art expos.
Head to Mildura in March for the Mildura Wentworth Arts Festival. In September the Mildura Country Music Festival presents Australia's biggest showcase of independent country music artists. The Mildura Jazz and Wine Festival in November combines the best of Australian modern and traditional jazz with the opportunity to sample the region’s fine wines.
The Riverboats Music Festival, held each February in Echuca-Moama, is another celebration of jazz and blues, enjoyed with great food and wine alongside the Murray River. For a change of pace, catch the Club Marine Southern 80 in February, the largest waterskiing race in the world, which attracts over 40,000 spectators.
In December, try your luck at the Cod Opening Classic, Australia's largest inland fresh water fishing competition or head to Albury Wodonga for the Murray Masters Golf Pro Am, a PGA sanctioned tournament held over five days which attracts both international players and local professionals.
