Gunbower Creek

The Gunbower Creek breaks away from the Murray River near Torrumbarry and re-enters the Murray River at Koondrook, flowing through Cohuna along the way. Along its length, it provides ideal conditions for year-round exploration and adventure.

Forming the south-western boundary of magnificent Gunbower Island, kayakers love the creek’s gentle flow, stunning scenery and abundant birdlife along the many quiet stretches. Cool mornings and brilliant late afternoons are ideal for spotting rare birds while strolling along the creek and explore the island via the new footbridge.

The creek takes on a new character through the Winter months with the water level lowered in line with the cessation of the irrigation season.

A cruise on the creek on the Wetlander and the Egret with Cohuna Nature Cruises is suspended for the cooler months due to the low water level. Take time to walk the creek and discover all that normally hides away under the water level.

Adjacent the creek is Apex Park, Cohuna. The waterside park is undergoing some exciting upgrades to the barbecue facilities and new jetties are perfect for sunny lunchtime relaxing.

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