Real life in a small town

Ever since Major Mitchell set up camp in this area in 1836, this small town has been a living example of the spirit of discovery and a demonstration of the best things in life. Even today, camping on the very same banks remains a major drawcard.

Howlong is considered one of the top spots to fish for that elusive Murray Cod and the river will provide hours of fun for families and those who love nothing more than to soak up the sun, relax and enjoy all this majestic waterway has to offer. From waterskiing and canoeing, to swimming, and enjoying a simple barbecue at Lions Park, the river-based options in Howlong are endless.

Historic Howlong

With historic buildings sprinkled throughout the town, Howlong’s History Trail provides a perfect way to discover this riverside town. Starting at the Howlong Hovell Tree, the trail spans 13.3 kilometres and covers 28 significant locations in the area. However, for those requiring a shorter stroll, Howlong has a unique garden that is open to the public and inspired by the distinctive and ancient gardens found in the City of Suzhou, in Eastern China.

Family activity and discovery

If its golf you’re after, then the Howlong Country Golf Club is one of the best all-weather courses you will find along the Murray. One of the host courses for the annual Murray Masters, it’s a ‘must play’ on your Murray River bucket list. Not a golfer? Then you’ll also find accommodation, bowls, dining or just coffee and cake here in the one venue.

Relax with a picnic barbecue and a game of table tennis on the outdoor table in the heart of Howlong’s Lowe Square. You’ll also find a BMX park, skate park, playground and flying fox along with the public barbecue and RV facilities.

Or get someone else to prepare home-made food while you kick back at the ½ Acre Coffee Lounge and Nursery. Set in an old home, you can treat the family to some tasty cakes and slices and simple meals.

Howlong offers a range of accommodation options from traditional country pubs to up-market B&Bs – there is something to suit every need and budget.
