If sport is not your passion there is plenty of things to see and do over the Easter holidays on the Murray River. An abundance of leisure activities in and around Corowa may see you visit the Corowa Rotary Federation Farmers & Variety Market (walking distance from our caravan park), or a visit to one of the wineries across the river in Wahgunyah for their Easter music afternoons (www.pfeifferwinesrutherglen.com.au; https://www.stleonardswine.com.au/; https://www.allsaintswine.com.au/). As the wineries are only a leisurely bike riding distance away, you may like to visit 1, 2 or all 3 mentioned and then head past Wahgunyah’s only Straw Bale Winery, Valhalla Wines, where wine maker Anton Therkildsen has kept his Danish heritage alive with some links back to the Vikings.

Maybe your perfect Easter Sunday morning is more about relaxing in the park with the family before adventuring out. If this is case, why not use our fantastic bbq facilities for an easy breakfast cook up, whilst the kids play on the jumping pillow, before taking them to Corowa’s Great Easter Egg Hunt (Free event) at the RSL Park (only 2 minutes by car). Here you can grab a coffee and relax in the park whilst the kids enjoy a puppet show, jumping castle, face painting and of course scouring for eggs.
