Goulburn River

The Goulburn River Basin is an ancient and iconic river system in Victoria, covering over 1.6 million hectares or 7.1% of the state. The Goulburn River itself flows for 570km from the Great Dividing Range upstream of Woods Point to the Murray River east of Echuca. It is a rich and diverse ecosystem with significant environmental, cultural, and recreational value.

The lower Goulburn River, separated by Lake Eildon, is a river in transition, where the river's character changes from clear water with riffles, pools, and runs, to a deep and turbid typical lowland river at the confluence with the Murray River. Access to the lower Goulburn is excellent, particularly in the beautiful river redgum forests, which are prevalent in many places. Murray cod, golden perch, and pockets of redfin are abundant in the lower Goulburn River, and the new VFA fish hatchery on its banks at Arcadia will significantly benefit anglers in the long run.
