Morning in Moulamein
Start your adventure with coffee and cake at the Moulamein Art Gallery, which is open Thursdays and Fridays, or by appointment. There’s always something interesting in the gallery, which features art and craft from local artists.
From there, it’s just a minute’s stroll to the old Moulamein Wharf and nearby restored courthouse, where you can see and read about Moulamein’s vital role in the establishment of river trade across the entire Riverina region.
Kyalite – two huge drawcards
Head west on the Kyalite Road for about 40 minutes, and you’re in the small town of Kyalite, where the Edward River meets the Wakool River, just a couple of kilometres from the Murray. Kyalite, known as Wakool Crossing until 1927, has been a popular draw card for years due to two things: the pub and the fish.
The Kyalite pub is a local watering hole, community centre, general store and museum. Stop by for supplies and enjoy a chat with the locals. If you left your fishing gear at home, supplies are available for purchase here too.
Which leads us to fishing. Many people will declare, hand on heart, that the very best fishing anywhere in Murray Country is right here. Ask around for tips on where they’re biting, and head out for a few glorious hours at the water’s edge.
