Torrumbarry

 

 

Torrumbarry lies between Echuca and Gunbower. It is a place of great significance and with a tremendous history. The Torrumbarry Weir Interpretive Centre is a popular tourist stop, focusing on the history of the Murray River, with special attention given to the building of the original weir at Torrumbarry and the subsequent “new” weir in 1996.

 

The Gunbower/Torrumbarry wetlands is one of the most significant wetlands in  Australia, recognised as having international importance (commonly known as “Ramsar sites”) and categorised as one of the most important wetlands in the Murray-Darling Basin.

 

Torrumbarry is a haven for those who enjoy camping, fishing, boating, waterskiing, bushwalking and bird-watching.

 

Torrumbarry township services the immediate rural district and provides basic retail facilities for tourists.
