Events

Passion brings people from far and wide to appreciate all the wonderful events and festivals on offer throughout the year. From food and wine events that everyone can enjoy, through to more specialised and national events for enthusiasts, the region boast great venues in beautiful settings.

Food and wine enthusiasts flock to the numerous farmers’ markets held in the region, filling their baskets with fresh, locally grown produce. There are monthly markets at Yarrawonga Mulwala, Numurkah, Nathalia, Barmah and the Rotary market at the Yarrawonga Showgrounds and the Lions market in Cobram. October sees the Numurkah Foodbowl Festival where locals and visitors get together for a weekend of food and fun, including a market day, dinner dances, the long slow brunch and much more.

Watersports events bring competitors for canoeing, waterskiing, powerboating and fishing competitions. Keen visitors line the foreshore of Lake Mulwala and the banks of the Murray to be part of the action, especially during the famous Cod Classic near the end of the year. It’s Australia’s richest freshwater fishing tournament, but loads of fun for novices and children as well.

Car clubs venture here to show their pride and joy vehicles to car enthusiasts, particularly during the Rod Run in Yarrawonga. Shiny cars and the fabulous drag race at the Wilby Park Raceway make this a great event for all ages. And you know it’s finally summer when Numurkah hosts Show Us Ya Wheels, an action-packed, family-friendly car show.

Not just cars, but motorbikes, boats and even planes get a look-in at the annual Sun Country Historic Vehicle and Machinery Club Picnic at the end of summer. Tennis events take over the region at Easter time, and there are horseraces, rodeos, art exhibitions and other special interest events that continue to draw the crowds year round!
