Self-Drive & Touring

Wide open road.

Exploring the glorious Murray and nearby towns and villages is a perfect way to spend your days as you tour around the region. Whether you’re travelling solo, in a couple, or with a convoy of friends, the combination of friendly towns, idyllic camping grounds, great weather and open roads is as close to paradise as you’ll find anywhere.

Arrival - Day 1

The region around Corowa welcomes people towing caravans or travelling in motorhomes, and is well set up with facilities to make exploring the region easy and convenient.

Start your journey at Howlong. Grab some bait and some inside info before heading to the river for a spot of fishing. If you’re lucky, that’s dinner sorted! Otherwise, you’re still in luck, as the nearby Court House Hotel, Howlong Hotel and Howlong Golf Resort all serve great meals, and are within easy walking distance of the caravan park.

Day 2

After a delicious breakfast at the ½ Acre Coffee Lounge, hit the road and head down to Rutherglen and Wahgunyah, choosing a winery for lunch and maybe popping into a cellar door or two. In the afternoon, head north through Corowa to Oaklands, a small town with overnight RV parking. Take in the town’s historical Vintage Machinery Museum.

Day 3 - Mulwala or Urana

Depending on your preferences, kick off the day either heading north to the aquatic playground of Urana – featuring waterside walking tracks and sculptures that form part of a sculpture trail that also takes in Lowesdale, Boree Creek, Oaklands and Morundah – or back down to vibrant Lake Mulwala for lakeside leisure, watersports and fishing). Wherever you go, there are camping grounds and caravan parks to relax in.
