Hi all,
Planning our October trip which will bring us home to Melbourne via Mildura, I see that Hattah NP is closed through the River Rd till end 2012. Damn! A great place to camp. Not much interested in the Hattah Lakes. So the advice is that camping is available downstream at Colignan or upstream at Wemmen.
Has anyone any experience at either? Any advice appreciated.

We had the same issue over Easter. Why GMW couldn't delay the start of the works for a week to allow for the busiest camping period was mystifying. Anyway...we stayed on the river south of Robinvale. Almost as good but no large sandy stretches like at Sextons Bend. Same rules - free and can have a fire. It the area north of Tol Tol Rd (you can see all the tracks clearly on Google Earth). Return to Melbourne via Swan Hill is a nice drive as well.

Thanks for the advice, Adrian. Have just had a look on Google Earth and definitely looks a possibility.

There are heaps of places along the River on the Victorian side to camp. All the way from Nangiloc - Colignan through to Nichols Point. Psyche bend is also a good spot. On the NSW side mostly private property but there are some good spots at Bottle bend and Sandbar bend. No facilities - just good river front camping.
