Situated on the Broken Creek between the Goulburn and Murray Rivers, the charming towns of Nathalia and Barmah lie in a unique area full of nature, history and country hospitality. Part of Sun Country on the Murray, the wonderful climate is just one of the many reasons to stay. Comprising the Barmah National Park, Broken Creek and of course the mighty Murray River, this area is well worth a visit.
Learn about the fascinating indigenous and colonial history of the area at the Barmah Forest Heritage and Education Centre in Nathalia or soak up some sun and relax on the banks of the Murray River or Broken Creek.
Take some time to explore the natural wonders of the heritage listed Barmah National Park and marvel at the 500 year old River Red Gums and spectacular wetlands, which are home to over 236 species of birdlife and a unique range of Australia's flora. An early morning visit to Ulupna Island – in the park’s north east – will not disappoint, with regular sightings of kangaroos and koalas up close and personal.
Why not have a hit of golf at a local golf club, enjoy a nature-based cruise on the Barmah Lakes or take a self-guided tour of our historic buildings. Get active and water bound and explore the region and take in the scenery while paddling a canoe or kayak, a great way to truly get back to nature.
Whether passing through or staying for a month, there are plenty of options.
