Lake Mulwala Family Fun
Yarrawonga's Aquazone is an inflatable adventure park on the Yarrawonga foreshore and right adjacent to the Mulwala Bridge.

A 50-square metre playground, the park's combination of waterslides, trampolines and obstacle courses caters for thrill seekers from 7-years of age upwards.
Life jackets must be worn at all times and some pretty stringent safety restrictions apply, but if you play by the rules, Aquazone is an incredibly energetic and fun experience.

Aquazone is open daily throughout summer with 50-minute sessions, commencing each hour between 10 AM and 5 PM. Plan to arrive at least 30-minutes prior to your session in order to be fitted with a lifejacket and undertake a safety briefing.
A single session ticket costs $18. A Family Session Pass lasing 1-hour and covering 2 Adults and 3 Kids costs $80. Package options include a VIP Family Unlimited Pass and Group Bookings for 25 or more customers. There's also a range of Summer Splash Gift Cards available for purchase.

Children under 15 years of age will only be admitted if they are accompanied and supervised by an adult aged 18 years or over. All participants need to be able to swim a minimum of 20-metres unassisted.
Summer on the Murray can be incredibly hot, so if you find yourself anywhere near Yarrawonga/Mulwala in such circumstances, Aquazone could be just the spot for you to enjoy a great fun way to cool down.
Yarrawonga is 284 kilometres north of Melbourne, about a 3-hour 20-minute drive via the M31 Hume Freeway to Benalla, then the A300.
