Barmah Hotel — 1hr 5 mins (63.3.4km) from Shepparton

The Barmah Hotel is of modest appearance but don't let the exterior fool you. Inside is a warm, cozy venue that serves awesome pub food. This hotel is a popular place for car club cruises because of its location on the Murray River and, of course, the grub.

The place really hots up over the Anzac Day week coinciding with the famous Barmah Forest Muster. It's also the closest licensed premises acessing the huge Barmah National Forest and the associated tourism ventures which support the town.

One worthy of a mention is Kingfisher Cruises, which offers travelling “the narrows” where you will experience the timeless, natural beauty and peace of the World Heritage-listed Barmah Wetlands on board MV Kingfisher. Learn from a Eco-guide about the ecology of the area and the about the birds and their habitats including the Azure Kingfisher. Following your cruise enjoy lunch at the Barmah Hotel.

Barmah Forest too is a gem. It is the largest river redgum forest in the world. It presents a myriad of tracks to explore your way to the Murray River banks. Just be careful and respectful of the many aboriginal sacred sites within the forest.

An easy cruise from Shepparton.
