Mathoura, NSW

Mathoura is located a short drive north of Echuca/Moama and is gateway to the Australia’s largest redgum forest, magnificent rivers, creeks, wetlands of international significance and many nature-based activities. The collectively known Barmah-Millewa Forest is home to hundreds of species of birds, animals, plants and trees. Mathoura has arguably the best access in the region to the Murray River, with good dry weather roads and no high banks.

The recently constructed Gulpa Creek Reedbeds Bird Observatory is a must-see for visitors, as are the forest walks and the Cadell fault. Popular activities include fishing, waterskiing, swimming, golf, camping, bird watching, canoeing, horse riding, tennis, lawn bowls, bush walking, wine tasting, exploring the Mathoura Heritage Walk and Pioneer Cemetery and relaxing in a beer garden with a cold beer and a great meal.

Mathoura began as a market garden and a pub on a drovers’ track in the mid-1800s and built itself as a timber source for the developing young nation of Australia. Today it has become a mecca for lovers of a gentle country lifestyle and those seeking peaceful holidays amid forests, waterways and a beautiful natural environment.
