Lake Boga

Lake Boga, northernmost waterway in a chain of lakes between Kerang and Swan Hill in the state's north, enjoyed its five years of fame in World War II when it was the base for the No 1 Flying Boat Repair Depot.

Today the Catalina A24-30 and the Communications Bunker mark the site of the original base while the nearby museum houses a variety of flying boats that have landed on the lake over the years. A section has been reserved for the craft that saw air service during the war.

For those who have never felt the thrill of taking off or landing on water, the museum's flight simulator and theatre shares the experience with visitors.

Boga and its sisters lakes to the south, Kangaroo and Charm, are popular playgrounds for swimmers, boaties, anglers and water skiers, while the shoreline attractions include St Andrews Winery, a restaurant and the Imperial Egg Gallery which specialises in Faberge-style, decorated eggs.

The cellar door at Best"s Wines, 5km off the Murray Valley Highway to the south of town, is open from Monday to Saturday for tastings.
