If you want to kick back and soak up some sun (while ramping up your relaxation quotient), you’ve found the right spot. Stretch out in the reflected light of the river, take in the tranquil views and, or breathe the cleansing, Eucalypt-scented air – this is soul-healing country.
Stroll around the twin towns to get a photo with the largest windmill in the southern hemisphere, built in 1948, potter past 1926-built historic Robinswood Homestead and stop off by the river with a picnic pulled from the cornucopia of the surrounding vineyards, fruit and vegetable fields. And don’t forget to treat yourself to great examples of Australia’s slow food movement. Robinvale and Euston are just the places to let a meal drag out for an hour or two, or three.
Ready to kick it up a notch? You’re in the perfect spot to put all that rest to good use when you dive into nearby Hattah-Kulkyne National Park for picturesque walking and cycling tracks, canoeing or birdwatching.
The well-maintained Bumbang Island Reserve allows you to explore campsites and canoe-trees, as well as observe ancient burial grounds of the first people of the land. Pop back to your Murray-side accommodation to throw in a line and indulge in a bit of river fishing before dinner, with a glass of local wine to aid your contemplation of the scenery. When it comes to brilliant days in the sun, Robinvale and Euston really know their game.
