Anglers can take their pick from the many fishing spots, the Delatite River and Howqua River are popular locations. If you’re new to the sport, experienced guides can teach you the fine art of casting and lure fishing.

For family time by the water, pack a picnic and wile away the hours at one of Mansfield Mt Buller’s riverside swimming holes. Or for a longer escape, find a stream-side camping spot in the popular Howqua-Hills area or the historic Upper Goulburn area.
