What to See and Do
Cobram-Barooga is set in one of the most picturesque areas of the Murray River. Here you can participate in a range of fun water sports, bushwalk or play a round (or two) of golf at the 36-hole golf course. Discover the waterbird wonderland and Aboriginal canoe trees at nearby Quinn Island. The adjacent Ulupna Island Flora and Fauna Reserve is home to koalas, kangaroos and birdlife. If you just want to unwind, soak up the sun at one of the wide sandy beaches, there’s no place like Thompson’s Beach, the longest beach along the Murray. A stay with El Sierra means you can enjoy the heart of the Murray and take advantage of this region’s amazing food, wine and art.
