Doing the Tasmania trip Feb/March 2016. Took advantage of low peak fares but have just realised Easter will be early next year (end March). Will be taking 2 weeks to head back to Kingscliff, Northern NSW and do not wish to do the coast route as this has been well travelled. Would love to see a bit of the Murray. Any suggestions of what route would be the most interesting heading home. Don't mind free camping or picturesque caravan parks, what ever comes first.??

Melbourne to Mildura, along the Murray to Tocumwal, then up the Newell Highway via Narrandera, West Wyalong, Forbes etc to Goodiwindi then East to Kingscliff.

Dear Michele,
If you are going to do the suggested Mildura Tocumwal route, may I suggest that you do a side trip to Lake Mungo if you have the time and weather permitting. One can camp at Belah Campsite, providing you are not towing a large van, as it is halfway around the circuit, no water available but has a drop toilet. It is worth the drive.
You can do it as a day trip from Mildura but start early.
Have a great time on your journey
regards, Stanley.

Hi Michele,
Another alternative, up the Hume Highway to Albury ( boring but quick ) then follow the river down to Mildura, via Tooleybuc and Ouyen. Head home from Mildura on the Sturt Highway to Narrandera then the Newell as Notso said.

I should have mentioned this alternative was suggested as it includes Albury/Wodonga, The Rutherglen Wine Region & Yarrawonga/Mulwala.

Yep, Rutherglen, Corowa, Yarrawonga, not a bad part of the world. Plenty of beautiful free camping spots along the Murray. We are lucky to have it on our doorstop. March/April has lovely weather, starts getting chilly mid to late April. Come and enjoy!
