A scenic, ambling stroll along Rochester's Campaspe River.
Commencing at the Red Bridge near the centre of town, the river walk wraps along the Campaspe River both north and south.
The Campaspe River Reserve is not just a bush walk but a history lesson along the way. Plaques dot the walk at specific points of local historical interest; providing insight into how the local Aboriginal people used the area. For example, pointing out ‘scarred’ trees caused when the bark was stripped by the Aboriginal people to make canoes, shields, containers and shelters. And the grooved rocks from grinding their axes.
The Campaspe River, a tributary of the Murray River (Australia’s principal river), is slow flowing along the walk through the Reserve – and is a must-do experience when in Rochester.
