Information

Some of the best camping on the Murray can be found on the banks of the Murray between Cobram and Barmah. Numerous sandbars on a myriad of tracks with plentiful firewood but no loos.

You can have a sandbar to yourself most of the time and they are free camping - but they are to be avoided in peak season. Take your rod, pick up some Bardi Grubs in town, or some Yabbies, and if it's not closed season try your luck fishing for Murray Cod. Min keeping size is 50cm (Season closed end of July to 1 Dec) and you'll get a great feed from one fish. You need a NSW fishing license to fish in the Murray though.

Detour to up to the Victorian side of the river near Tocumwal or from Strathmerton head to Ulupna Island. Ask in town. Someone will point you in the right direction.

Don't miss the Strathy Bakery!
