Below you will find an alphabetical listing of Corowa Tourist Attractions.

Any Attractions that are underlined are linked to more information.



Aboriginal Art Site


    Yeddonba aboriginal art site is "hidden" in the bush near Mt Pilot. This site is well worth a visit as it has been clearly labelled, well set out and clearly marked pathways, fully maintained and provides some extremely interesting facts, spectacular views and a "strange feeling" being in a sacred place. The rock caves are also fascinating.

    It will leave you with the question of how were these "Chiltern" aboriginals able to paint a Tasmanian Tiger ?

Camping Holidays


The Murray River with help from the Parks and Gardens and Conservation and Envioronment Departments provides some magnificent locations for weekend camping, or even camping holidays.

These locations are on the Victorian side of the Murray River, and are set amongst huge River Gums, many on beautiful sweeping river corners. Tables and BBQ facilities are available, but there are no toilet facilities. Rubbish collection sites or containers are at most locations.
