Camping in nature

Ulupna Island, Barmah National Park

It’s all about being at one with nature, toasting marshmallows around the campfire, snoozing in a deckchair while a fish nibbles on your line, marvelling at the brilliant blanket of stars, or just watching the Murray River flow by.

For tent campers, RVs and campervaners, free bush camping in the state forests, national parks and red gum reserves along the Murray River between Albury Wodonga and Mildura Wentworth is hard to beat, with hundreds of sandy beaches and secluded bush spots connected by river tracks.

More established sites might have a picnic table, fireplace, and basic toilet facilities, or you can just pick a shady spot by the riverbank and set up. When camping in the region, make sure you take any rubbish with you.

Visit outside the busy Christmas and Easter school holidays to have the best chance of snagging a prime spot!

If you prefer the comforts of home, or even a splash park or bouncing pillow for the kids, caravan and holiday parks might be better for you.
