Timeout In Yarrawonga

Timeout In Yarrawonga


Posted 2017-03-23 by Ian Gillfollow
The construction of a weir on the Murray River at Yarrawonga 1935 was the first step in the creation of a waterway which led to the twin towns of Yarrawonga Mulwala developing into perhaps the most popular aquatic sports centre along the length of the river.

With near perfect weather year round Lake Mulwala hosts a range of water sports including sailing, swimming, water skiing, canoeing and fishing.

BBQ boats are popular and two commercial vessels, the restored paddle steamer CUMBEROONA and a modern day equivalent the PARADISE QUEEN , run a variety of lake and river cruises.

The kids will love the AQUAZONE inflatable aquatic playground on the foreshore adjacent to Mulwala Bridge and right next to the skate park.

Catering for fun-seekers 7-years and older AQUAZONE comprises a series of great waterslides, trampolines and obstacle courses.

The same weather that makes the district an aquatic paradise is also a magnet for golfers attracted to Australia's largest public access golf resort, the magnificent Yarrawonga Mulwala Golf Club Resort or the nearby and much newer Black Bull Golf Club situated on the Silverwoods Golf and Lifestyle Resort .

Boasting 3 magnificent layouts, the Lake, Murray and Executive courses, Yarrawonga Mulwala Resort includes luxury accommodation and fine dining.

Silverwoods is a residential development and the Black Bull a challenging 18-hole layout designed by Peter Thompson.

Of course. if sport and exercise is not your thing Yarrawonga Mulwala still has you covered with three major clubs providing outstanding wing, dining & entertainment options plus an enormous variety of shopping, cafes, restaurants and pubs stretching the length of Yarrawonga's Belmont Street.

When it comes to eating out my value-for-money favourite has to be the Oriental Pearl Chinese Restaurant at Club Mulwala . On a recent visit, our group of three enjoyed a large sumptuous entré each, shared two huge main courses, 2-glasses of wine and a beer for just $88. The food, service and atmosphere were all excellent.

Yarrawonga Mulwala is just 265 Kms north of Melbourne via the Hume Freeway and Benalla, just over a 3-hour drive.

It's a great family destination with its waterborne activities, golfing options, clubs, wining & dining, nearby wineries or simply to relax around the lake in some of the wonderful sunshine the region is famous for. There are many reasons to call Yarrawonga Mulwala an oasis.
