Mountain Rivers District
The Mountain Rivers District includes Bendoc, Goongerah, Tubbut, Deddick, Delegate River, Bonang, Dellicknora and Cabanandra districts.
The Mountain Rivers District is named for the many streams that trickle out of the springs and soaks of the Errinundra Plateau, shaping the valleys and eventually joining the Snowy River.
The least populated region of Victoria, it includes small hamlets such as Bendoc, Bonang, Goongerah, Gelantipy and Tubbut, which are nestled in river valleys and separated by grassy plans, farmland and mountainous woodlands. Farming has always been the region’s major economic activity.
The area features some of the most stunning alpine forest and river gorge scenery in the state, as well as the heritage-listed McKillop’s Bridge. Said to be the longest arc-welded steel truss road bridge in the world, the 255-metre bridge is one of the standing wonders of Australian road-bridge engineering and is a popular launching place for experienced canoeists who wish to explore the Snowy River.
