The Murray

Welcome to the legendary Murray River, Australia’s longest and most iconic river, a state border, lifeblood to millions and a great place for a holiday. The river itself is a popular place for fishing, camping and watersports – especially in the summer months when daylight seems to go on forever.

The "Mighty Murray" forms the eastern border of the Gannawarra region and is ready to host you, your family and friends for this summer’s unforgettable river experience.

The picturesque town of Koondrook boast the award-winning contemporary wharf and floating pontoon. The unique design of the wharf and location in the park is the perfect place for functions or weddings, and features viewing platforms, public art and mooring for boats.

Thousands of campers flock to the Murray River annually for camping and fishing, with summer bringing a festival feel to many popular campsites. Many take up the opportunity to fish for the iconic Murray Cod and Yellow Belly. The river can be accessed from boat ramps in Koondrook and Murrabit and from within the Gunbower Forest near Cohuna.

A gentle cruise along the river offers a different perspective of the beauty of the red gum eucalypts that line the banks and the wildlife that call the river home.

You can choose to cycle or drive along River Track experiencing both the Murray River and Gunbower Forest. Information on tracks accessible in the forest can be obtained through our Gateway to Gannawarra Visitor Centre in Cohuna.

The Murray. It’s a place where you can make your own legendary experiences.
