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.

Just a 2.5 hour drive from Melbourne, and set along the picturesque Murray River, the area offers the perfect blend of activity and tranquility, with breathtaking river panoramas and forest playgrounds just yearning to be explored. Centred on the thriving border centres of Echuca Moama and Barham Koondrook, this is just the place to kick back and enjoy a relaxing summer.

Slow down, unwind and soak in all the natural beauty our Murray River Country has to offer – our fresh air, blue skies, long sunny days and balmy starry nights.

Step off the beaten track and unearth an exhilarating world of award-winning wineries, restaurants, coffee shops, golf courses, artisan stores, clubs, touring routes, 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 areas 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.

The warmer weather invites outdoor fun. Pack your shorts, t-shirts and bathers as we invite you to touch, taste and explore your way around our magical river wonderland.
