This historical town and regional centre is a great place to base yourself for all of your adventures North of the Murray. We offer more to do, see and experience. Corowa sits on a bend in the river, just across the border from the village of Wahgunyah in Victoria. The town’s proximity to land- and water-based activities, as well as notable historical sites and world-class food and wine, means visitors are spoilt for choice all year round.
Comfortable Mediterranean weather means places such as Corowa’s very own fishing wharf and sandy river beach, known as ‘the Lagoon’, become magnets for tourists and residents all year round. But it’s the Murray that takes centre stage here, with water-based recreation a major reason to visit Corowa. There’s amazing fishing, of course, but also a wide range of boating and water sport activities to try.
Explore Corowa’s rich heritage on a walk around the town’s heritage buildings. See the old railway station and Oddfellows Hall – the site of the 1893 Federation Conference that paved the way to Australian federation. Browse the collection at the Federation Museum, and don’t miss the National Federation Festival on the Australia Day weekend to celebrate Corowa’s claim to fame.
With the world-famous Rutherglen wine region just across the river, visitors don’t have to go far for quality food and drink. Book a winery tour in Corowa or Rutherglen to sample the region’s signature full-bodied reds and fortified wines.
Treat your sweet tooth at the Corowa Whisky & Chocolate Factory, a former flour mill that now produces handmade Belgian-style chocolates and is developing a whisky distillery. While here, visit one of the town’s weekend markets where you’ll meet the makers and growers and learn the story behind the products.
While visiting Corowa you’ll quickly realise why the region around Corowa is so popular with holidaymakers year after year.
