Stage 1 starts on Murray River Adventure Trail

The first stage of the Murray River Adventure Trail is underway following the appointment of a firm to plan and design the section from Picnic Point in Barmah National Park and Koondrook.

More than $10M is being invested in trail upgrades, new trail, kayak launches and small bridge crossings as well as and new facilities at several key visitor sites, including picnic facilities, car parking and toilets.

This initial section of the project is expected to be completed in 2024.

Parks Victoria will undertake cultural heritage and environmental assessments to ensure new sections of trail and visitor infrastructure are created taking these elements into consideration. 

When complete, the Murray River Adventure Trail will connect a series of walking, cycling and watercraft trails all the way from the east near Wodonga to Mildura in the west.

New nature-based tourism experiences and better connections between towns will encourage people to visit new locations, extend their stay, boost tourism and support the regional economy.

The trail will be easily accessible and cater for both day and multi-day trail visitors.

The Murray River Adventure Trail and nine other projects, including the Grampians Peaks Trail, Falls to Hotham Alpine Crossing and Wilsons Prom Revitalisation, have received $149 million to support jobs and local communities.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio said: “Northern Victoria offers a unique landscape and natural environment for locals and visitors to enjoy, that’s why it’s so important to protect these places while supporting the local economy.”
