Summary

This loop trail provides a pathway that connects points of cultural, natural and historical significance around Corryong township. Surrounded by mountains and steeped in history, there is much to see.

Description

Corryong is the centrepiece of the magnificent region known as the Upper Murray. It is located just 11km from the Murray River and prettily settled amongst the grand foothills of the Australian Alps.

The Corryong Circuit Trail is comprised of a sealed pathway beginning in the centre of town and then following a loop along Corryong's outer streets. It provides valuable recreation options for residents and visitors alike. It also provides an excellent perspective on the town and the marvellous surrounding landscapes.

Enjoy Corryong in any season. It is a town of many colours. Spring sees rich greenery, summer the dry yellow of the warmer months, autumn the vivid glory of a deciduous fall and winter the white of snowcaps. Don't forget to always carry water, food, wear appropriate clothing and be SunSmart.

The trail itself consists of concrete footpaths negotiable by all ages. The route is urban / periurban with great views from the high points. There are mild slopes to the more elevated parts of town.

Hanson Street is home to the Corryong CBD with visitor information, shops, cafes, historic and cultural offerings. There are seats, picnic tables, potable water, and clean public toilets.

Dogs should be on a leash unless specified otherwise.
