For Friends

Soak up the dun with your besties

Get out of town this summer and head to the river for a fun and relaxing time with your closest friends. A weekend (or even longer) with the girls, or a blokes-only getaway; the Corowa region is perfect in the warmer months. There’s heaps of adventures to have – here are just a few ideas to get the ball rolling…

Arrival - Day 1

While there are lots of caravan parks and hotel/motel options, why not check into one of our region’s excellent self-contained properties? Corowa’s Murray Bank Holiday Units is set on 16 acres with 250 metres of river frontage for fishing, bird watching or just relaxing, and is a good place to start your accommodation search. Imagine arriving, settling in and stretching out on the lawn in the warm afternoon air.

For dinner after arrival, head down the road to the Corowa RSL, or Corowa Golf Club for an easy dinner and kick off the weekend with a couple of well-deserved drinks in the evening.

Day 2

Head into Corowa for a fresh-cooked café breakfast – angle for an outdoor table if you can – and fuel up on coffee before taking a walk around town. Look out for buildings that played a role in Australian Federation on the Corowa History Trail.

Tee off for 18 holes in the late morning sunshine at the majestic Corowa Golf Club, then head to Corowa Whisky and Chocolate to sample the chockies and amazing small-batch whiskies, and enjoy some lunch in the cool 100-year-old building. In the afternoon head back to your accommodation for a well-earned rest, ready to freshen up for that dinner you planned earlier.

Day 3

After a lazy sleep in and a long brunch, head south of the state border with your friends to sample some wines at nearby Wahgunyah. Wander the grounds at Pfeiffer’s; a perfect place to relax in the warm weather. Just make sure you’ve got room in the boot for a few bottles of your favourite drop.

Zip across to Mulwala for a scenic lunchtime cruise on the PS Cumberoona before deciding whether you need to head back home, or want to stretch out your stay even longer, taking full advantage of the summertime adventures on offer along the Murray.
