The end of the Murray Valley Highway at the Bringenbrong Bridge near Corryong

The Murray Valley Highway[1][2] (Australian Alphanumeric State Route B400.svg/Australian Route 16.svg[3]) is a popular tourist route, which follows the south side of the Murray River in Victoria, Australia. The route effectively acts as the northern-most highway in Victoria. The western end of route B400 is the Murray River bridge at Robinvale, although the Murray Valley Highway crosses that bridge as National Route 16 to connect with the Sturt Highway 2 km further north. Historically, the Murray Valley Highway continued west to connect with the Calder Highway at Hattah instead of crossing the river. The eastern end is in the foothills of the Great Dividing Range at Corryong. There has also been a contemporary re-alignment of the Eastern end; whereby the highway used to go through Thologogong, Walwa and Towong (the current 'Murray River Rd' C546). The route also extends further east and crosses the border into New South Wales as the Alpine Way.

Most of the highway is fairly straight and flat, much of it through irrigated farmland. It becomes hillier and more winding east of Wodonga, with a moderately steep mountain pass near Koetong, between Tallangatta and Corryong.

The major towns along the route are Robinvale, Swan Hill, Kerang, Cohuna, Echuca, Nathalia, Strathmerton, Cobram, Yarrawonga, Rutherglen, Wodonga, Tallangatta and Corryong.
