Located between Echuca and Gunbower, Torrumbarry has significant historic importance, with the original trestle weir and lock chamber heritage listed.
The Gunbower/Torrumbarry wetlands are among Australia’s most significant and are also categorised as one of the most important wetlands in the Murray-Darling Basin.
The town was named after a pastoral run in the 1840s and used mainly for dryland farming during the later 1800s. The original weir, just outside the township, was finished in 1924, with the ‘new’ weir completed in 1969, along with the interpretative centre.
