The Murray

  • Tocumwal, The Murray, Victoria, Australia

Visit this historic town on the Murray River and find beautiful river beaches, spectacular red gum forests, and the 'World's Biggest Codfish', a seven metre-long landmark on Tocumwal Foreshore Reserve.

The town takes its name from the Aboriginal word, 'Tocumival', meaning 'deep hole', a reference to a waterhole in the area sacred to local Indigenous tribes. 

Hit the riverside beaches for camping, bushwalking, horse riding, fishing for Murray cod, bird watching, canoeing and swimming.

Enjoy a spot of bird watching by the river or visit the nearby Ulupna Island to see native flora as well as koalas and kangaroos in their natural habitat.

During World War II, Tocumwal Aerodrome was also the largest RAAF training base in the Southern Hemisphere.
