Information

Dispersed bush camping by the Murray River surrounded by flood plain forest - River Red Gums, billabongs and swamps with an understory of wattles and long grass. Prolific bird life. Little cattle grazing. Rougher and longer tracks than for most other Murray River Reserves contributes to them being less popular (less crowded). Very distant highway noise.
Cobrawonga Bend No 1 has a large beach with a narrow grassed bank with some shade from River Red Gums. Other similar sites are dispersed up to 8k downstream accessed off Cobrawonga Track (Killars Point, Hideway, Langi Oonah, Toms Beach, Pumphouse Beach), some of which may have picnic tables.
Cray Point (accessed via Dead River Track 0.8k) has a small beach and grassed, shaded, level bank.
Access off the Murray Valley Hwy [B400] 17k south-east of Cobram, 21k west of Yarrawonga (nearly opposite Grinter Rd, 300m east of Bymay's poplar plantations); north on Cobrawonga Track 200m to forest boundary and information board, over bridge and 700m to junction with Dead River Track, left over bridge (3 ton limit), 1k to Cobrawonga Bend 1 Track, 1k to Cobrawonga Bend No 1. Tracks are rutted and worn.
