Autumn Family Adventure

The kids are back at school, but Autumn brings long weekends and Easter. So whether you’re planning a short getaway or a longer stay, there’s plenty to do for people of all ages in our region. Here’s just one plan for enjoying family time together this Autumn.

An Autumn family break to remember

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 Tasman Parks, Ski Club Holiday Park or the Big4 Yarrawonga Mulwala Holiday Park? The grown-ups can stock up on supplies for an easy barbecue while the kids play on the park equipment. If you’re coming at Easter try to plan ahead and nab your accommodation nice and early!

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.

Day 2

Sunny autumn days mean there’s still 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, which features free boomnetting for the kids. Don’t forget your swimmers!

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. We average 84% rain-free days here in autumn, but if the weather is a little cool, see what’s playing at the cinema.

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 the beer garden or 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 sites as the region comes to life in amazing colours throughout autumn. There are trails to suit all levels of fitness and all ages of riders.

Pay a visit to Corowa Whisky and Chocolate 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…
