Camping

With a mild, warm and dry climate, and spectacular wilderness areas, The Murray is ideal for camping and caravanning holidays. Stay in a forest park or choose a holiday site with full facilities. For a unique camping experience, join an overnight guided camping tour with a local Aboriginal guide.

Caravan and holiday parks
The Murray River is a caravan and motor-home-friendly region. Relax and enjoy the convenience of powered sites, recreation areas, covered camp kitchens, showers, toilets and washing machines, dump points and boom gate security. Some sites have wireless internet, TVs, pools and tennis courts. Call ahead to secure your spot at peak school holiday periods.

Bushland and river bank camping
Bush camping is popular on the banks of the Murray River. Pick the perfect shady riverside spot between Albury and Mildura. For a full list of local sites, contact the visitor information centre.
