A very warm welcome

With around 6000 people calling Corowa home, this historical town and regional centre is a great place to base yourself for all of your adventures North of the Murray. We offer more to do, see and experience.

Corowa sits on a bend in the river, just across the border from the village of Wahgunyah in Victoria. The town’s proximity to land- and water-based activities, as well as notable historical sites and world-class food and wine, means visitors are spoilt for choice all year round.

While here, visit one of the town’s weekend markets where you'll meet the makers and growers and learn the family stories behind the products. Corowa also boasts charming places to eat, from restaurants and cafes to bustling pubs and clubs.

Corowa's great outdoors

Comfortable Mediterranean weather means places such as Corowa’s very own fishing wharf and sandy river beach, known as ‘the Lagoon’, become magnets for tourists and residents all year round. But it’s the Murray that takes centre stage here, with water-based recreation a major reason to visit Corowa, and a major reason why people return. There’s amazing fishing, of course, but also a wide range of boating and water sport activities to try.

Surrounded by the majesty of the Australian bush, locals and visitors don’t waste the opportunity to get out into nature. For the more active types, there are mountain bike and trail rides to keep the adrenaline pumping. Walking tracks and hiking routes allow you to see the world at a slower pace, while birdwatchers can tick off some unique species just by standing still.

Family fun

For families, playgrounds, skate parks and recreation reserves with barbecue facilities allow you and the family to kick back and enjoy some treasured time together.

In town, there are beautiful bowling greens, popular tennis courts and – perhaps best of all – the magnificent 27-hole championship golf course that takes the ‘work’ out of working on your game. Positioned right on the river with stunning views, a wayward hook or slice could see your golf ball turn into fish fodder! There’s a cinema there, too, to kick back and catch up on the latest releases.

Before European settlement in the 1840s, the indigenous Bangerang people, whose lives were centred on the rich and bountiful Murray River ecosystem, inhabited the Corowa district. With the discovery of gold in the nearby Beechworth district in the 1850s, it wasn’t too long before Corowa emerged as a significant river port.

In 1893, the People’s Convention was held here, in which the initial support for a democratic Australia was fostered; Corowa aptly earned the title of the ‘Birthplace of Federation’. It’s no surprise, then, that the town oozes history at almost every turn. Follow the self-guided Corowa History Trail to learn the history of the beautiful old buildings in town and their significance to Federation. Grab a map from the Corowa Visitor Information Centre.

Food and wine

With the world-famous Rutherglen wine region just across the river, visitors don’t have to go far for quality food and drink. While here, visit one of the town’s weekend markets where you'll meet the makers and growers and learn the story behind the products. Corowa also boasts charming places to eat, from restaurants and cafes to bustling pubs and clubs.
