No visit to Sun Country on the Murray is complete without a trip to the bustling regional hub of Numurkah.
Despite the active street life of this busy rural community, the town exudes a relaxed, friendly vibe. Explore the pretty main street on foot; you’ll be greeted with smiling faces as you pass speciality shops, well-stocked eateries, as well as charming gardens, wide open spaces and historical buildings.
Being the centre of a thriving agricultural area, Numurkah is a food lovers’ paradise. On offer are a range of locally made wines, handmade cheeses, cold pressed olive oil, as well as organic honey and almonds. The makers of the Farm Gate Trail will be happy to give you a taste and a tour around their farms and chat about the processes involved.
Nestled in the many smaller towns that surround Numurkah, you will find antiques and bric-a-brac, great country pubs and authentic country bakeries. You may even spot a koala, kangaroo or rare bird as you travel the surrounding wetlands and forests such as the Kinnaird’s Wetlands.
Days can disappear as you indulge in the districts produce. Wander around the town’s lakes, creeks and wetlands, throw in a line, or you can simply enjoy a round of golf, bowls or tennis in the sunshine.
