Corryong Kids Caper
The active family's dream long weekend
Does your family crave adventure?
This journey will see you splashing in idyllic waterfalls, drinking in 360 degree views to a monolith even larger than Uluru, devouring farm-fresh local produce and riding the rapids of the famous Mitta Mitta River.
Rest assured, we have planned every step for the perfect family long weekend - one that will see each member leave feeling invigorated, delightfully astonished and wanting more of the beautiful Upper Murray. Of course, we know you will want to spend more time in the places you fall in love with, so we urge you - make this odyssey your own; the specific flavour of your unique family.
