Winter Family Fun

Making Memories That Last

A weekend of fun, adventure and simple pleasures is close at hand this winter. There’s plenty to do for people of all ages North of the Murray. Here’s just one plan!

A Winter family break to remember.

Arrival - Day 1

While there are lots of hotels and motels, and excellent self-contained options, why not book a cabin or two in Mulwala at the Ski Club Holiday Park or the BIG 4 Yarrawonga Mulwala Holiday Park?

The grown-ups can stock up on supplies for an easy barbecue while the kids play on the park equipment.

Kick back with the family and watch the cool evening give way to bright starry nights over Lake Mulwala. You can literally feel the stress of day-to-day life evaporate in the breeze.

This is the life.

Day 2

Time to get out on the lake! The whole family will love lunch and drinks aboard the PS Cumberoona paddlesteamer. Or try the modern MV Paradise Queen. It might be a bit cool for boomnetting, but the lake retains its beauty in all weather.

Tunzafun, right in the heart of Mulwala, features fun for kids that adults will love too. Try mini golf, dodgem and krazy cars, and don’t miss flying above it all in the chairoplane. This is pure pleasure, spending important time sharing experiences and building memories. For a more simple experience, there’s also the fun adventure playground nearby, just near the lake.

If all of this activity has worn you out, see what’s playing at the cinema or pick up a bit more local knowledge at the Yarrawonga Pioneer Museum.

Head to your accommodation for a rest and a freshen-up before visiting one of the local pubs or clubs for a hearty dinner in a cosy bistro.

Day 3

Up and at ‘em, starting with a big breakfast at a Mulwala café. Fuel up on fresh local produce for a day of exploring. After breakfast, take an easy half-hour drive across to Corowa and hire a bike from Corowa Sportspower. Make sure you pick up a copy of the Walking and Cycling Trails from the Corowa Visitor Information Centre, then cruise the region enjoying the natural and historical sights. There are trails to suit all levels of fitness and all ages of riders.

Pay a visit to Corowa Whisky and Chocolate Factory for lunch. Tours, samples and snacks are sure to keep your whole gang happy in their striking 1920s Corowa Flour Mill building. It’s a fun-packed way to round off your Mulwala getaway, or prime you for ongoing adventures in the region.

Then it’s time to return the bikes and head back to base for an evening meal in Mulwala.

And when you finally do head for home, why not start planning your next Murray River getaway?

Maybe a longer stay in Corowa next time…
