Travel Tuesdays – Yarrawonga Mulwala

A year ago Rewind was invited to the towns of Yarrawonga and Mulwala to do a dance tour of the primary and secondary schools in the area. The town residents were so welcoming and we had a blast teaching them. You can see pics of the classes on the Rewind blog here.

With great weather and great company, we spent our down time relaxing by the lake and trying out the water activities. It was so much fun and hopefully this year we’ll be back again for more!

Yarrawonga is around 3 and a half hours drive from Melbourne situated in north Victoria across the Murray River from the New South Wales town of Mulwala. The original aboriginal inhabitants of the area were the Pangerang Tribe and named the area. “Yarra” means “water running over rocks” and “wonga” was named after the “wonga pigeon”. Mulwala means big lagoon or big back water.
