Mathoura is located in the Riverina-Murray River region of NSW, just 40km north of the Victorian border towns Echuca-Moama.

Mathoura is known as the gateway to one of the largest Red Gum forests in the world.

This forest is some 70,000 hectares and includes wetlands of international significance and has arguably the best access in the region to the Murray River, with good dry weather roads and no high banks.

Mathoura began as a market garden and a pub on a drovers track in the mid 1800’s, and built itself as a timber source for the developing young nation of Australia.

Not surprisingly, timber still remains an economic mainstay of the area ever since the woodcutters first arrived in the 1850’s.

The Red Gum timber is used for railway sleepers, furniture, landscaping, firewood, fence posts, and much more.
