Pick up a little piece of the Murray region for yourself before you leave. Find a great item for the living room made from the iconic red gums of the Murray River, or bring back a taste of quality local produce from specialty food shops and local markets.
Custom red gum treasures
Take a guided tour of the Arbuthnot Sawmill in Koondrook and head to the town centre to find wood-turners and furniture makers that design and build to order. Using material sustainably harvested and milled in the region, local makers showcase their signature craftsmanship and the red gums' dense and lustrous auburn glow.
Visit the Murray region's famous markets and get your fill of farm fresh fruit and vegetables, gourmet goodies and homemade sauces and pickles to rival your grandmother's. Crafts enthusiasts can also look forward to stalls offering handcrafted goods, art and clothing by local artisans. Time your visit to coincide with the many weekly markets and monthly markets in Mildura, Merbein, Rutherglen, Howlong and Wodonga.
