Lakeside Lifestyle

Lake Mulwala’s water-based activities are a focal point of Mulwala township, but this country town is also busy with festivals and events, markets, and live shows. Renowned for its wonderful climate, this picturesque piece of regional New South Wales is a perfect place to take some time out and enjoy the stunning scenery and spectacular sunsets over the lake.

As a real working town, Mulwala is also an easy place to connect with the local community and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.

Creating a Glorious Waterway

When the creation of Lake Mulwala was first discussed in 1937, the vision was not just an irrigation storage facility but a picturesque lake. And now there are endless opportunities to enjoy time on the water.

Whether it be skiing, wakeboarding or getting your adrenaline pumping on a biscuit or banana ride, thrill seekers are well and truly catered for in Mulwala. But this is also the perfect opportunity to slow down, relax and recharge the batteries with more passive water activities like canoeing, fishing or touring the lake on board a luxury cruise boat.

Visit the Yarrawonga–Mulwala Pioneer Museum to discover more about the pioneering history of Mulwala and its industries and explore the intricate exhibits on display all year round.
