Cobram-Barooga has enjoyed a hefty influx of holidaymakers over the past few weeks.

Cobram-Barooga Visitor Information Centre team leader Sue Zonneveldt said she had noticed an increase in visitor numbers during the summer holiday period this year.

‘‘It’s been hectic,’’ she said.

‘‘Particularly people from Melbourne and other parts of Victoria are starting to become more aware of what we have to offer.

‘‘The river is the biggest drawcard, the boating, the fishing and also the casual lifestyle.

‘‘For those who love camping, there are some pretty amazing spots.

‘‘People are surprised we have beaches.’’
