Overview

Food & wine

From wineries and cellar doors to hatted restaurants, country pubs and farm gates, the Murray River region's list of eateries and boutique producers grows with each passing year. Share an opulent lunch overlooking the river, savour a dinner to remember at Stefano's in Mildura, or start the evening early at rustic local vineyards and country pubs.

Trailbound

Follow the Echuca Moama Food and Wine Trail or The Farm Gate Trail for the chance to sample the best produce of the region. From local wines and fresh fruit and vegetables to artisan chocolates and sweets, there's plenty on offer for self-caterers to stock up on.

Summer harvest

Blessed with a sunny, Mediterranean climate, the Murray is the centre of Australia's dried fruit industry. It's also the state's largest wine-producing region, boasting over two-thirds of the state's total wine output.

Choose from a huge range of fruit fresh straight from the fields at street-side stalls and farmers' markets. The Hume Murray Farmers Market in Wodonga is a regional favourite, as is the fortnightly Sunraysia Farmers' Market in Mildura. Farmers' markets are also a great place to pick up preserves, jams and all kinds of gourmet treats.

Freshwater delights

Tuck into a plethora of freshwater fish plucked straight from the Murray River. Pop into food stores and cafes in towns along the river to taste delicious river fare, including yabbies, Murray crays and the famed Murray cod.
