Get directions

The Wonangatta River rises in forested mountainous country, (1,600 m altitude) and flows through a forested gorge with some cleared river-flats in the middle reaches near Talbotville. It can have low water flow and shallow water during summer. Accessible in the lower reaches by conventional vehicle but elsewhere by 4WD.

Good fishing at times and becoming more popular as increasing numbers of people visit the Wonnangatta-Moroka National Park. The Wonnangatta carries abundant river blackfish, abundant small brown trout, short-finned and long-finned eel, congoli, Australian grayling, common galaxias, mountain galaxias and Australian smelt.
