Gateway Village lies in Wodonga on the Victorian side of the border and is home to some of our region's most popular arts, culture and hospitality places. Some of these include the Burraja Centre, Hot House Theatre, La Maison Café and many galleries with lots of exciting exhibitions.

Go for a walk and enjoy the sights and sounds of the Murray River at the same time, stop for a picnic, spot some wildlife and learn about our Indigenous culture along the way. You can even extend your walk with one of the many other trails that connect at various points.

Every second Saturday at 8am, the Hume Murray Farmer's Market takes place at Gateway Village. There is plenty of local produce to taste and enjoy.

This trail lots to see and do, so make sure you allow enough time to enjoy all it has to offer!
