The Murray

Welcome to the legendary Murray River, Australia’s longest and most iconic river, a state border, lifeblood to millions and the BEST place for a holiday. The Murray is a popular place for fishing, camping and watersports and is one of the main attractions throughout the region.

Thousands of campers flock to the Murray River annually for camping and fishing. Many take 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.

The heritage river town of Koondrook boasts the award-winning contemporary wharf where in the early 1900’s paddlesteamers were a common site on the Murray. The unique design of the wharf and location in the park makes it the perfect venue for functions or weddings, and features viewing platforms, public art and mooring for boats. These days Koondrook is a growing destination on the Murray with new accommodation and hospitality options popping up to service the many visitors and residents. Situated on the Murray River and Gunbower Creek and within a short walk to the Gunbower Forest, Koondrook is blessed with an amazing environment steeped in history and culture of days past.

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

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