General information

Yarrawonga is situated between Cobram and Rutherglen in the north of the state, across the Murray River from the New South Wales town of Mulwala.

Yarrawonga's major natural attraction is Lake Mulwala which was formed by the building of a weir across the Murray River in the 1930s. The resulting 23 kilometre long lake is a popular location for boating, fishing and swimming. A number of tourist operators offer cruises on the lake and river for visitors.

Yarrawonga is a renowned holiday destination, well regarded for its warm and stable climate and the array of festivals held in the area throughout the year. The main shopping strip is located along Belmore Street, with attractive parks and gardens located at the northern end which front onto Lake Mulwala.

The Tudor House Clock Museum is a privately owned collection of hundreds of antique and novelty time pieces. Contact the information centre to arrange a visit.

At the Yarrawonga Weir, visitors can enjoy good views along the Murray River and across Lake Mulwala. Great water views can also be enjoyed by walking across the main bridge that links Yarrawonga with Mulwala. There is a pedestrian walkway along the 500 metre long structure.
