The Howlong Historic Trail consists of 28 locations and is a 13.3 kilometre circuit.

The history of Howlong dates back to 1836 when Major Thomas Mitchell established his camp on the southern bank of the river. Crossing to the northern side he observed gig wheel tracks where white settlers had ventured before.

The town was surveyed in its present formation in 1856 with ten streets from east to west and ten streets from north to south, bounded by the Black Swan anabranch of the Murray River.

A detail map and information can be collected from the Howlong Community Resource Centre or from the Corowa Visitor Information Centre.
