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.

Set along the picturesque Murray River in NSW, our area offers the perfect blend of activity and tranquillity, with breath taking river panoramas and forest playgrounds just yearning to be explored. A two and half hour drive from Melbourne, and just over three hours from Wagga Wagga, and 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.

Step off the beaten track through summer and unearth an exhilarating world of fresh air, open spaces, cycling trails, walking tracks, national parks, golf courses and camping spots.

Summer promises open borders and the reopening of award-winning wineries, restaurants, coffee shops and artisan stores. After a year unlike any other, we're keener than ever to welcome new visitors and say hello to old friends.

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-date agricultural industries.

Leave the crowds behind and discover a more relaxed rhythm of life with morning bush walks, river adventures, afternoon cruising, evening sunsets and campfires.
