Reconnect in River Country

Beautifully framed by waterways and native bushland, Murray River Council is home to a vibrant mix of riverside communities where relaxed country living and modern-day indulgence collide.

Just a two and a half hour drive from Melbourne, and set along the picturesque Murray River, this area of the majestic Murray offers the perfect blend of activity and tranquillity. Breathtaking river panoramas and forest playgrounds are yearning to be explored as autumn’s milder weather makes the great outdoors even greater.

Centred on the thriving border centres of Echuca Moama and Barham Koondrook, this is just the place to slow down, unwind and soak in all the natural beauty our Murray River Country has to offer.

Escape the city, step off the beaten track and unearth an exhilarating world of award-winning wineries, restaurants, coffee shops, golf courses, artisan stores, cycling trails, walking tracks and home-grown festivals.

Our smaller towns are the perfect launch pad for exploring the natural landscapes, and are also vital community centres that celebrate the area’s pastoral history and present-day agricultural industries.

Discover a more relaxed rhythm of life with morning bushwalks, river swims, afternoon cruising, evening sunsets and campfires.
