Mathoura is located a short drive north of Echuca/Moama and is gateway to the Australia’s largest redgum forest, magnificent rivers, creeks, wetlands of international significance and many nature-based activities. The collectively known Barmah-Millewa Forest is home to hundreds of species of birds, animals, plants and trees. Mathoura has arguably the best access in the region to the Murray River, with good dry weather roads and no high banks.

The recently constructed Gulpa Creek Reedbeds Bird Observatory is a must-see for visitors, as are the forest walks and the Cadell fault. Popular activities include fishing, waterskiing, swimming, golf, camping, bird watching, canoeing, horse riding, tennis, lawn bowls, bush walking, wine tasting, exploring the Mathoura Heritage Walk and Pioneer Cemetery and relaxing in a beer garden with a cold beer and a great meal.

Mathoura began as a market garden and a pub on a drovers’ track in the mid-1800s and built itself as a timber source for the developing young nation of Australia. Today it has become a mecca for lovers of a gentle country lifestyle and those seeking peaceful holidays amid forests, waterways and a beautiful natural environment.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
