Over the summer period, the Murray River had one more thing to recommend it – an inflatable waterpark. The new Sports Park 95 installation is at Lake Mulwala where the Murray River spreads itself wide between Yarrawonga and Collendina. The Victoria-NSW border goes through the lake, but the sports park is on the Victorian side.
Aquazone@LakeMulwala is the seventh Wibit sports park operating in Australia. The 50 square metre aquatic sports adventure park opened in November and will operate until late April 2017.
In developing the attraction, managing director Deb North was influenced by the popular open water inflatable water parks operating on the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast. Having recently gained approval to operate the business under a seasonal licence from Moira Shire Council, North said the business would employ up to 40 staff during Yarrawonga-Mulwala’s peak tourist season,
