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 paddling along the creek and exploring the island via the new footbridge.

Due to COVID-based restrictions, cruising the creek on the Wetlander is currently suspended – they hope to back in mid-spring. In the meantime take time to walk the creek’s edge and discover all that spring time weather brings to the water.

Adjacent to the creek is Apex Park, Cohuna. The waterside park has recently undergone some exciting upgrades: new barbecue facilities, the new jetties are perfect for sunny lunchtime relaxing, and walks at any time of the day.

If you like your action a bit faster, the Cohuna ski run, just upstream from town, is a popular place for waterskiers of all ages and abilities to hone their skills.

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.
