It's Family country
Gather the kids and enjoy an unforgettable break. With a range of activities on offer, there’s plenty to keep the family occupied.
Visit Mulwala’s own amusement park and try your hand at navigating your way through a boat, around a jet ski and over the Yarrawonga Mulwala Bridge on a newly renovated minigolf course. We guarantee you’ll have as much fun as the kids. Don’t miss the trampolines, Krazy Kars, mini train, dodgem cars and swinging chairs. Cobram’s indoor play centre is a great place to while away a few hours. Kids will have a ball climbing through tunnels, working their way through the obstacle course of the jungle gym and sliding into a pit full of colourful balls. Including a computer room, arcade games & a café, it’s all here.
If you’re looking to get out into the sunshine, there are plenty of parks and reserves on offer in the region. Stroll through the Barooga Botanical Gardens before cooking up a BBQ feast while the kids play on the playground. Thompson’s Beach is shaded by magnificent towering red gums in the day and floodlit in the evenings, so is the perfect spot for a family get-together. Enjoy free BBQ’s, a playground area for kids, swimming, walking, beach cricket, volleyball, canoeing and fishing. In the warmer months you can’t go past either of the two waterslides located right on the Yarrawonga Mulwala foreshore. For the littlies, a visit to the splash park is also a must. For the active family, there are a number of skate parks and swimming pools to choose from in the region, including a heated pool in Barooga and Numurkah.
Enjoy a scenic lunch cruise on Lake Mulwala – learn all about the lake’s history or just sit back, relax and enjoy the sun. If it’s warm enough, jump into the boom net while you cruise along. Kids will love getting up close to real farm life in Numurkah – tour a dairy, milk the cows and feed the calves.
If history is more your thing, there are a number of museums featuring memorabilia from pioneering days: flying machines, wool presses and bicycles in one, a blacksmith shop and shearing shed in another. An enthralling collection of classic cars, trucks, caravans, tractors and other memorabilia is sure to amaze, and for something a bit different there’s a collection of over 500 antique clocks. Visitors are amazed by the 1840s Indian Style Colonial Homestead located on the banks of the Murray River, or tour a 1911 farm cottage, working wool shed and historic property. From the main street of Cobram, walk through one of the original log homes of the district.
