LO­CALS have done their best to keep Ulupna for them­selves but are fight­ing a los­ing battle, with the area be­ing recog­nised as a hid­den gem of the Mur­ray River re­gion.

The in­land is­land, bor­dered by the Mur­ray River and Ulupna Creek, is known for its sandy beaches, wa­ter ski­ing, fish­ing and na­tive wildlife, in par­tic­u­lar the many koalas.

Par­re­arra, with its Fed­er­a­tion style homestead on 40.7ha, is in this unique area, and just a three-hour drive from Mel­bourne.

A me­an­der­ing drive­way with a la­goon and ma­jes­tic red gum back­drop leads to the solid brick house sur­rounded by land­scaped gar­dens.

The gar­dens, walk­ways, swim­ming pool and Mur­ray River less than 100m away be­yond the river bush­land cre­ate a hol­i­day re­sort feel.

The house, built in 1983, has four bed­rooms, in­clud­ing the main with a walk-through robe to the en­suite. There’s also a for­mal dining room, for­mal lounge room with an open fire­place, a study, coun­try style kitchen, a meals and fam­ily area, and spa in main bath­room.
