Mathoura began as a market garden and a pub on a drovers' track in the mid-1800s and built itself as a timber source for the developing young nation of Australia. Today it has become a mecca for lovers of a gentle country lifestyle and those seeking peaceful holidays amid forests, waterways and a beautiful natural environment.
Mathoura offers some great annual events including the Mathoura Fishing Classic, Mathoura's Dash for Cash, Easter Fair and Cadell Fair.
