Be sure to look out for local galleries and exhibitions. The Nathalia Golf Club is nearby or simply sit along the banks of Broken Creek in the centre of town.
A must see attraction is the Barmah Forest Heritage and Education Centre. It offers terrific information for those looking to explore the nearby Barmah National Park. Find out about the local indigenous culture, way of life and achievements.
Barmah is the gateway to the Barmah National Park, home to the largest stand of River Red Gums in the world and a wetland that is recognised under the Ramsar Convention as a wetland of International significance.
And they are not talking just any River Red Gum! Some of these trees are over 500 years old and grow to an astonishing thirty or forty metres in height. The Yorta Yorta indigenous community has lived in this area for more than 40,000 years, and today descendants remain to live and share this rich heritage.
A sixty kilometre self-drive tour takes you to places of interest throughout the park, including sacred Aboriginal sites, flora and fauna. Being on a major flight path for migratory birds, the park's wetlands are significant breeding grounds for water birds. Bush camping is enjoyed in the park, with canoeing or kayaking a great way to explore the waterways of this area.
