The Mitta Mitta River stands out to be a major tributary of the famous Murray River of Australia. In fact, more than 40% water of the Murray River is supplied by the Mitta Mitta River. Emerging from one of the highest mountains of Victoria, the watercourse then moves towards the Mount Bogong and makes its way towards the northward direction. The water body then slowly moves forward, joining the Murray River in its course.
Fed by the melting snow, the river drifts through the splendid Alpine mountains located towards northeastern Victoria and then enters the striking Omeo Valley. The whitewaters wind through the magnificent forests by the riverside, giving the rafters enough scope to watch the wonderful natural beauty.
The best rafting season in the Mitta Mitta River initiates in August and continues till the month of October. During this time of the year, the river remains at its peak condition. The Mitta Mitta River is also well-known for sporting torrents of Class III and IV, offering you the most amazing rapids in your trip. As you sway through the tumultuous whitewaters, you can feel the force of the powerful waves, as they tend to make your rafting voyage quite difficult. Among the various electrifying rapids of the water body, “The Graveyard”, “Dislocation”, “Grim Reaper”, “The Roller Coaster” and “The Gobbler” are prominent ones.
However, once you plan to raft on this captivating Mitta Mitta River, don’t forget to put on your helmet as well as your wet suit. You can also carry some eatables and drinks and stop at places to rejuvenate yourself. However, those not that much attracted towards water sports can plan for a joyful camping expedition by the riverside. So, what are you waiting for? Get set and throw yourself into the magnetic waters of the enthralling Mitta Mitta River!
