Located on the Ovens River and with Mount Buffalo as its backdrop, Porepunkah is the ideal family holiday location with lots of things to do. In summer, take your children down to the Ovens River for a swim and a picnic, or kick back and enjoy a meal at the recently refurbished Porepunkah Pub or Rail Trail Cafe. Or enjoy a ride or walk along the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail, or head to nearby Feathertop or Ringer Reef wineries to sample their fine wines.

Mount Buffalo is a short drive from Porepunkah, with the trip half the experience. In the warmer months, enjoy wildlife watching and crystal clear waterfalls - you may even find a secret spot to take a dip.
