Barham - Koondrook

The twin towns of Barham (NSW) and Koondrook (Victoria), located on the mighty Murray River ooze charm and character galore and offer many choices for a day trip, weekend or extended holiday.

Beyond the expected country hospitality and charm, the towns feature national parks, state forests, picturesque recreation areas and a scene of natural activities and boutique food, wine and cultural experiences.

Not surprisingly, many activities here are based around the iconic Murray River including wetland cruises, fishing, camping, bushwalking, boating and canoeing. Combine these with a diverse and exciting range of eateries, a collection of individual country retail shops, niche farm gate experiences and the many unique markets and events nestled along the river, and you’ll quickly see why Barham Koondrook has much to offer the seasoned traveller or the occasional visitor.

Autumn Highlights

  • Immerse yourself in nature – explore the national parks and state forests, hire a kayak, go bushwalking, camping or fishing.
  • Explore the wide range of cycling and walking trails through the bush and pretty township, including Riverwalk and Botanic Reserve.
  • Stretch your legs with a gentle walk along the community build boardwalk at Barham Riverside Park. Riverside Park is also a start of the Koondrook Barham Redgum Statue Walk where the history of the twin towns is depicted via 17 chainsaw carved redgum statues and information boards along the banks of the river and across the border town of Koondrook.
  • Take in some retail therapy! Barham hosts a collection of individual country retail and niche shopping experiences. If you are looking for some chic homewares or trendy fashion pieces Barham has plenty on offer.
    Jump on board a relaxing river cruise along the Murray River from Barham or Gunbower Creek aboard the Wetlander.
  • Visit the Border Flywheelers Museum with artifacts celebrating the farming community along the Murray Darling Basin.
  • Did you know bridges are not just functional, they can also be scenic and engineering attractions? Take a moment to stop and admire the iconic Barham Bridge over the Murray River. Built in 1904, the Barham Bridge is historically significant and rare, being only one of two of this design type.
  • Discover the local artisan produce and boutique eateries, and explore the many wineries and farm gates along the Backroads Trail.
  • Purchase local wines and produce at Bundarra Berkshires, Barham Vines, Barham Avocados and Redgum Grove to enjoy at home. Pick up a copy of the River Country Food, Paddocks & Produce Guide for more information on local produce available in the region.
  • Head to the club or one of the hotels for great food and entertainment.
