Gunbower Creek

The Gunbower Creek breaks away from the Murray River near Torrumbarry and re-enters the Murray River near Koondrook.

It forms the western boundary of magnificent Gunbower Island with the Murray River bordering the eastern boundary.

The Gunbower Creek is an important natural carrier in the irrigation supply system. It holds water permanently and has very high environmental value, particularly for native fish and water birds.

Its high water levels and gentle banks make it very attractive for camping with great access to the water for fishing or canoeing. Visitors to the Gunbower Creek can also explore the island and the Murray River via a network of signed tracks. Upstream of the Cohuna township water skiing is a popular past time.

For a unique opportunity try a Wetlander Cruise. From August to May you can enjoy a dining experience while meandering through the natural beauty of the Gunbower Creek and surrounding forest.

From Apex Park you can take a tranquil trip on board with Cohuna Nature Cruises. The relaxed time on the locally constructed vessel gives you an insight to the diversity of the Creek and its importance to both the environment, agriculture and recreation.
