Known as the River Bank Garden Town

Murchison is a small community full of character and charm situated on the banks of the Goulburn River. The serenity and friendliness of Murchison is a pleasure to experience. The relaxed atmosphere of the town hides a depth of history and beauty just waiting to be discovered.

Murchison is internationally known for the Murchison Meteorite that fell over the township in September 1969.  Fragments of the meteorite are on display in many museums around the globe with the meteorite estimated to be 4.5 billion years old. The Murchison Meteorite is etched in the minds of locals who are more than willing to tell the story of their experience.

The history of the wartime internment camps is also evident with the Italian Ossario, constructed in remembrance of Italian prisoners of war and internees who died in Australian wartime camps.

Wander beside the river gardens and marvel at how the township looked in days past with the many lecterns along the extensive boardwalks and viewing platforms over the majestic river, or stretch the legs even further on the Murchison Rail Trail which offers a short, scenic cycle or walk through a classic Australian cropping landscape and significant river red gum wetlands. 

The culture and history of Murchison is represented in buildings scattered through the township, including the atmospheric Days Mill, historic Thornebridge and Murchison Heritage Centre. The old and the new gives this river bank garden town a character all its own.

Wind down on the weekend with a wood fired pizza and glass of wine at Longleat Wines.
