The township of Barmah is the gateway to the Barmah National Park, and sits on the banks of the Murray River, on a very picturesque river bend. This is a wonderful area for camping, canoeing, bushwalking, fishing or enjoying a river cruise.
The Barmah National Park is heritage listed and home to the largest stand of River Red Gums in the world. The oldest River Red Gums are over 500 years old and often grow to thirty metres in height.
The narrowest section or “choke” of the Murray River is upstream of Barmah, bounded on either side by the Moira and Barmah lakes.
Take the self-drive tour to sites of historical interest in the Barmah Forest, including the Muster Yards, Punt Paddock Lagoon, Cornalla Landing, Green Enging, the Gulf and Tongalong.
The Barmah National Park has a fascinating history that can be explored at the Barmah Forest Heritage & Education Centre in Nathalia.
