A drive along the Murray River brings you past the historic Towong Racecourse where scenes from “Phar Lap” were filmed and where the gangster Squizzy Taylor once stole the takings.

Further along visit the historic Tintaldra township for a walk back in time. Visit the Tintaldra Store Museum with historical relics and records of the first settlement in the Upper Murray region.

 

Farran’s Lookout along this route gives picture postcard views all year round and particularly in winter with the snow capped mountains behind the clear winding Murray River.
