The Murray River at Corowa
The mighty Murray River is an icon of North East Victoria and Southern New South Wales being the clearly defined border between the two states. The Murray River at Corowa serves numerous agricultural, domestic and leisure purposes and is a major attraction of the townships of Corowa, Wahgunyah and Rutherglen.
Fishing in the Murray
The Murray River is home to numerous fish including legendary Murray Cod. Cod season is a major attraction for keen fisherman and there are many famous stories in the Corowa area about big catches and of course the ones that got away. You will also find Bream, Perch, Yelllow Belly and Redfin in various parts of the river in our area.
For the keen fisherman there is not much better than spending a relaxing day in the tinnie, fishing on the Murrray River.
Water sports are a big part of the culture of living on the Murray River. Whether it be skiing, wake boarding, canoeing, rowing or just leisurely floating down the river on a hot summer day, the Murrray River at Corowa is alive with water sport activities in summer.
There are numerous boat ramps in our area to cater for the water skiers and wake boarders. The Corowa Rowing Club and the Wahgunyah Rowing Club provide excellent facilities at the picturesque rowers park for people of any age to participate in this age old sport. Floating down the river on any sort of inflatable device is also a popular summer activity for locals and tourists. On Australia Day in January each year the river is packed with floaters from the new Federation Bridge to the old John Foord bridge in what is becoming a famous local Australia Day tradition.
Nature and Leisure Activities
The Murray River provides the perfect environment for nature and animals to thrive. There are numerous vantage points on either side of the river to see rabbits, wombats, porcupine’s, kangaroos and even the occasional snake enjoying their natural habitat.
Take advantage of the wooden fishing/viewing deck at rowers park or for those feeling more energetic there is an amazing nature walk along the river between Federation Bridge and John Foord Bridge on the Wahgunyah side of the great Murray River.
