A short drive from Albury-Wodonga, the calm waters of Lake Hume, held by an impressive dam wall, offers something for everyone. Think wakeboarding, water-skiing and tube-riding for the thrill seekers, or enjoy a picnic or BBQ at the foreshore and soak in the stunning mountain views. Fishing enthusiasts can try their luck catching one of the local freshwater fish species, Murray Cod, Rainbow Trout, Redfin and Golden Perch.
Wander Tallangatta’s main street and experience the unique 1950’s architecture. Grab a bite to eat at a cafe or pub, or pick up a picnic to enjoy at ‘The Triangles’ – a lush park with shady trees and a playground for the little ones.
Stretching over 80km from Wodonga and onto Corryong, the High Country Rail Trail follows the shoreline of Lake Hume, with the 600m Sandy Bridge Creek crossing over the lake a highlight. With plenty of picturesque road and gravel cycling routes to boot, Tallangatta and surrounds is a cycling utopia.
Tallangatta is 365km or approximately 4hrs drive from Melbourne.
