Freedom camping

For those adventurous travelers that like to get off the beaten track and discover hidden gems, there's plenty of opportunities to do so in Sun Country.

A selection of freedom camps can be found throughout our wonderful region with the jewels in the crown being our National and State Parks that line both sides of the Murray River.

The river beaches here are quite unique and there is nothing quite like waking up in the morning and listening to the gentle flow of the Murray just steps away from your tent of van.

This approach to travelling is supported by free dump points, access to potable water and long vehicle parking near shopping areas.

Here are some handy websites should you need any further information about Parks in both Victoria and New South Wales.
