Yarrawonga's main attraction is Lake Mulwala, formed by the damming of the Murray River, immediately downstream of Yarrawonga. The lake is a popular location for activities such as boating kayaking and fishing. There are two crossings of the Murray between Yarrawonga and Mulwala; across the weir; and a bridge over Lake Mulwala. This bridge contains an unusual bend and dip in the middle, a result of miscommunication between the two state governments.
The Yarrawonga Football Club participates in the Ovens and Murray Football League in the sport of Australian rules football, which has produced the likes of Barry Mitchell, Joel Smith, Ben Dixon, and Tom Lonergan.
Historically, one of the major industries in the Yarrawonga/ Mulwala area has been the explosives factory, which was constructed in Mulwala over 1942-43. It is now operated by French company Thales but remains an Australian Department of Defence asset.
