Mullinmur Billabong is a 20-hectare floodplain riparian woodland situated on the Ovens River, just 2.5 kilometers north of Wangaratta City Centre.

The area boasts of three scenic walking tracks, complete with picnic seating for visitors to enjoy.

Catholic Education manages the area with help from Wangaratta Landcare and Sustainability Inc and other partners. The focus is on conservation and education, with schools and groups participating in environmental activities.

The overall well-being of the area has been enhanced through proactive weed management, reforestation efforts, elimination of European carp, and the reintroduction of freshwater indigenous fish. The Mullinmur Billabong wetland is filled with various species of flora such as River Red Gums, Silver Wattle, Black Wattle, Sedges, Knotweed, and herbs such as Joyweed, Sneezeweed, and Carpetweed. Be on the lookout for an array of wetland and woodland avian species, and as night falls, you may even catch a glimpse of Barking Owls, Sugar Gliders, and Possums that emerge from the large, old trees that provide shelter and sustenance to many different creatures.

The area is a known turtle nesting area. To ensure wildlife are safe people are asked to keep their dogs on a lead.
