Torrumbarry Community & Tourism Website
Torrumbarry is a small, but active rural community on the Murray River approximately 25 kilometres northwest of the City of Echuca.
Community infrastructure comprises a primary school, local public hall, recreation reserve and CFA fire station. The district is serviced by a hotel/motel, caravan and recreation parks, several accommodation houses and a combined roadhouse/post office/general store.
Torrumbarry’s greatest natural asset is the magnificent Murray River and its adjacent natural parklands. The river and associated waterways, fringed by box and red gum forests has long been an attraction to anglers and campers. Up until the early 1970’s many privately owned riverside shacks and houses could be found along the river bends between Torrumbarry Headworks and the Torrumbarry Weir. These have since been compulsorily removed or demolished. The Torrumbarry Weir has created a broad and slow moving river between Echuca and Torrumbarry which is a great attraction to water skiers.
Historically Torrumbarry has thrived on community activity and this is still demonstrated today through active membership in community organisations such as the Welton Recreation Reserve, Torrumbarry Rural Fire Brigade, Torrumbarry Hall Committee and the Torrumbarry District Planning Group. The local Torrumbarry Community Club Incorporated raises thousands of dollars each year to support community events and projects, and is a major driving force in improving community facilities.
