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 Gunbower Island, kayakers love the creek’s safe waters, stunning scenery and birdlife. Cool mornings and late afternoons are ideal for spotting elusive birdlife while paddling.

Apex Park is in the heart of Cohuna and is one of the town's main activity centres for visitors and locals. The waterfront has recently undergone some exciting upgrades with new all abilities playground, barbecue facilities, jetties and piers and the very popular Cohuna Beach. The beach is a perfect place for families to build a sandcastle or enjoy a picnic.

If you like your action a bit faster, the Cohuna Ski Run, on the Gunbower Creek, is a popular place for water sports. A 5km stretch of fabulous water-skiing, wakeboarding and jet skiing keep people entertained. The boat ramp is about 4km from town on Cohuna Island Road.

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