The Murray Area Highlights & Essential Things To Do
Discover Your Local The Murray Area
Where red gums are semi-submerged by wetlands, eucalyptus dampens the air and the distant echo of birds occasionally breaks the silence, the Murray Shire sits indifferent to the world. If you live and work in the city and are keen for things to do to avoid the crowds, the Murray Shire is a hushed up holiday spot. It's the undisturbed corner of the world you've been trying to Google for ages.
There's no surprises there is not a lot about the Murray's events or activities on the web. The Murray Shire is a vast, open home to Australian flora and fauna. This is the perfect opportunity to re-acquaint yourself with what lies beyond the CBD's horizons. The Gulpa Creek Reed Beds Bird Observatory in Mathoura is a symphony of vibrant feathers and harmonies sweet enough to melt any tensions you've been harbouring. Otherwise, a walk at dusk through the Barmah-Millewa Forest, the world's biggest single stand of River Red Gum, crosses off one of those 'have-to' Australian experiences.
If you manage to fit bushwalking and bird-watching activities into one day, the Murray Shire is ideal for indulging creature comforts. Boutique country shopping in Moama is the perfect retail therapy after a lazy post-lunch ride on a Moama paddle steamer. Be sure to check out what's on in Womboota, a quaint little place with a tinier population to match, 26 km north of Moama. Think creamy weatherboard churches, wide country roads and a local bakery where you can grab warm lamingtons and jam rolls.
Whether it's the smell of apricot slice wafting through the air, the mind-clearing serenity of clustered red gums or just an escape from the strains of city life, the Murray Shire's attractions are everyone's country cuppa tea.
