Welcome to 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 breathtaking river panoramas and forest playgrounds just yearning to be explored. Just over 3 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 this spring and unearth an exhilarating world of fresh air, open spaces, cycling trails, walking tracks, national parks, golf courses and camping spots.

Spring will also see the reopening of award-winning wineries, restaurants, coffee shops and artisan stores - many of which have been offering online shopping and home delivery for much of the year.

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-dat 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.
