Tourism and Events

Overview

The Australian Government has put a ban on all non-essential travel to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. We look forward to welcoming visitors back to our Shire once this is all over, but for now we ask all visitors to please stay home. 

In an effort to discourage visitors to our Shire at this time, Council, together with Goulburn Murray Water, has decided to close the Eildon Alliance Boat Ramp to restrict recreational access to Lake Eildon from the Eildon township.  This is the ramp adjacent to the Dam wall at Eildon.  This decision is effective immediately and the ramp will remain  closed until further notice. 

If you would like to speak with a member of Council's Tourism and Events team in relation to visitor servicing or events please contact (03) 5772 0333 or email events@murrindindi.vic.gov.au

Visitor Information Servicing

Murrindindi Shire’s Visitor Information Centres - located in Alexandra, Eildon, Marysville (MiRa) and Yea (Y Water Discovery Centre) - are temporarily closed in support of measures to contain COVID-19. The safety and wellbeing of our visitors, staff and volunteers is our top priority.

During this period you can contact our Visitor Services team on 5797 3394, or by email at visitorinfo@murrindindi.vic.gov.au.
