Landscape 2 - Upper Murray


Connected and climate-resilient communities working together to support productive agriculture, recreation, cultural and natural values


An area of mountains, hills, valley floors and floodplains. It features high quality remnant vegetation, wilderness areas, beef and dairy production and tracts of softwood plantations.

Regional towns include Corryong and Tallangatta with other small towns, villages and localities across the landscape.

Many cultural heritage sites are maintained on public land and the area is of significance to the region’s Traditional Owners/First Nations Peoples.

The area has an ageing population, is experiencing population decline and has low economic diversity with a high dependence on agriculture.

In 2019-20 major bushfires severely impacted the landscape destroying or significantly damaging community and natural, built, and cultural assets.
