Welcome to Corowa on the murray

With around 6000 people calling Corowa home, this historical town and regional centre is a great place to base yourself for all the adventures the Murray can offer. 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.

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. There’s amazing fishing, of course, but also a wide range of boating and watersport activities to try.

RSL Rark Visit Corowa Region Inspiration For Families

outdoor adventure

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, awhile birdwatchers can tick off some unique species just by standing still.

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 catch up on the latest releases.

Pioneer Museum Mulwala Visit Corowa Region History Arts Culture Mulwala History


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.

From the roots of Federation, local Aboriginal and colonial artwork and vintage motorcars, the area’s history is proudly on display.
