Still heading west, Mulwala is the next town encountered when heading along the Murray River. Mulwala is the rich poor cousin to Yarrawonga, just over the river; or lake as it is.
Mulwala, a NSW town had its post war growth because of Victorian liquor and gambling laws. The even playing field has not prevented Mulwala continuing to prosper, albeit at a slower rate. That said Mulwala is a young town and there is nothing ‘old’ to get a nostalgic feel.
In 1858 Surveyor Adams marked out a township at the site. In 1866 a new hotel was opened at Mulwala and a school established at the township. Mulwala Post Office opened in 1864 for about six weeks, closed and was reopened on 1 June 1866.The pioneer, James McRae, died in 1866.
The area is a great place to relax; particularly in summer. Delight yourself and have a day or two or even more at this holiday resort.
