The twin towns of Yarrawonga Mulwala, separated by the Murray River, boast a large and beautiful man-made lake and combine to make the perfect spot for golfers, anglers, water sports fans, bush walkers and campers.
Known as Sun Country and including the traditional lands of the Yorta Yorta people, the area features plenty of sunshine and a wide-open landscape. Wander along pretty sandy beaches to find your own quiet swimming spot on the river. Or, if you're feeling adventurous, hire a canoe and explore the backwaters and lagoons.
Kick back on the banks of Lake Mulwala at dusk and take in a spectacular sunset over the water. The twisted trunks of the submerged red gum forest make for a striking scene. Alternatively, cast a line for the local Murray cod and golden perch, take a cruise across the lake, or try your hand at waterskiing.
King of clubs

Make the most of being in this strong farming region and find much of the fresh local produce available at farm gates. Pick up a Farm Gate Trail brochure from the local visitor information centre, grab your basket and stock up on all kinds of goodies for the journey home.
