The Gunbower–Koondrook-Perricoota Forest covers approximately 51,000 ha of the Murray River floodplain downstream of Torrumbarry Weir, between Echuca and Barham. Gunbower Forest is on the Victorian side of the Murray River and Koondrook–Perricoota Forest is on the New South Wales side.
Gunbower and Koondrook-Perricoota Forests are both listed as Ramsar wetlands of international importance. The forests are also an icon site under The Living Murray Program. The forest areas are suitable for camping, walking, canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards and fishing. Best access is via Moulamein Road or East Barham Road just out of Barham, or from the south-east near Moama.
Before you visit, take a look at important information, camping tips, regulations and any current closures by visiting the Forestry Corporation or National Parks websites, as listed on this page.
