Yarrawonga Mulwala accommodation, attractions & information
Welcome to Yarrawonga! The Aquatic Paradise
Yarrawonga is located at the south-western corner of Lake Mulwala where the lake passes through the Yarrawonga Weir and flows into the Murray River. These two bodies of water form part of the state boundary with New South Wales. Mulwala is clustered along the western shore of the lake. As it is located on the other side of the weir and the river to Yarrawonga it is, therefore, in New South Wales. However, the two are linked by a bridge over the mouth of the lake and virtually constitute a continuous settlement.
Being close to vast amounts of water and noted for its sunshine, it would come as no surprise to learn that this area is essentially a holiday resort and retirement centre, although the irrigation scheme supports substantial primary industries, such as dairying, agriculture and pastoral activities, in the surrounding countryside. It is 264 km north-east of Melbourne via the Hume Freeway (turn off at Benalla) and 128 metres above sea-level.
Renowned for its wonderful climate, this picturesque piece of regional Victoria and New South Wales is an "Inland Aquatic Paradise" for visitors to take some time to enjoy some stunning scenery, lose yourself in the serene surrounds of the forest, Lake Mulwala and of course the mighty Murray River.
