We are just over 3 hours from Melbourne by car, or you can catch the train from Southern Cross to Wangaratta then V-line bus to Porepunkah. There is a small airstrip just outside Porepunkah, and Albury airport is 75 minutes drive away.
Once here, the Murray to Mountains Rail Trail is at the top end of the court, so you can walk or ride to nearby Bright 6km or local Porepunkah Wineries. There are Vline buses that depart from outside Punkah Pantry heading towards Bright or Wangaratta, as well as numerous private operators to help you with any other transport needs.
Porepunkah is a gorgeous town with a friendly welcoming atmosphere. Locals and tourists alike enjoy the relaxed feel and recently upgraded facilities in the town centre. Great dining options are on offer with Rail Trail Cafe, Punkah Pub, Punkah pantry and the Local Roadhouse. There is also a children's playground, swimming hole and toddler pool down at the nearby riverside park. Porepunkah is the gateway to majestic Mt Buffalo.
