Yarrawonga is the major tourist centre over the river/lake from Mulwala. Yarrawanga is the main population centre for this region. Yarrawonga is a really nice small that over time has developed a strong community spirit.

Historically, one of the major industries in the Yarrawonga/ Mulwala area has been the explosives factory, which was constructed in Mulwala over 1942-43. It is now owned by French company Thales.

Yarrawonga's main attraction is the weir formed by the damming of the Murray River, immediately downstream of Yarrawonga. The lake is a popular location for activities such as boating kayaking and fishing.

There is a degree of heritage management in Yarrawonga, but also plenty of evidence of development.

The hotels in Yarrawonga are the classic Victorian Pubs.

The Churches are a mix of new and old.

The Catholic Church being the most striking.

The Yarrawonga War Memorial is located in the centre of the town.

The Clock Museum will be of interest to those that have a keen eye on the majesty and variation of the time piece.

This area is pretty magic and if the traveler strikes nice weather an extended stay is easy to do.
