Welcome to Murrabit
Murrabit is situated between Barham / Koondrook and Swan Hill on the Murray River in the State of Victoria, Australia. The township of Murrabit was established as a railway station on the Kerang-Stony Crossing Border Railway in 1925. The existence of the railway station made this an obvious place for shops and houses to cluster. The town was built two miles from the river, a stipulation set by the New South Wales Government as a condition of collaboration with the Border Railway Scheme. The redgum fringed reaches of the Murray River attract more campers than any other area in Australia. The river and its natural bush setting provides for boating, fishing, picnics and camping. The towering redgums line the Murray River and make for abundant native birdlife. The area is renowned for Murray Cod and Yellowbelly (Golden Perch) which prove a popular challenge to any angler. The vast natural beauty and tranquillity make this an ideal location to relax and enjoy the fresh air in the great outdoors. Plan to be in Murrabit on the first Saturday morning of each month to experience the Murrabit Country Market – the largest regional market in Country Victoria. Fresh fruit and vegetables, plants, clothing, and hardware are some of the goods available from the 400 odd stalls each month. Aromas of freshly cooked barbeques fill the air and morning teas of cappuccinos, scones, sandwiches and sumptuous cakes are served by local organisations in the almost 100 year old public hall. Additional markets are held on Easter Saturday and the third Saturday of December.
