Cobram is situated in heart of Victoria’s ‘Food Bowl’, home to some of the most picturesque sections of the Murray River. Located on the VIC / NSW border around 260km from Melbourne. It is home to approximately 5, 061 people.

The natural environment captivates visitors, with wide sandy beaches, towering gums and native bushland blended together.

The land around Cobram is part of a rich pastoral, dairy, fruit and wine-growing district, thanks to the irrigated water supplied by the Murray River and the warm climate.


The University of Melbourne’s UDRH has accommodation in Cobram to support health professional student’s clinical placements within our region. The accommodation is available to both undergraduate and post graduate health professional students.
