Dispersed bush camping (no facilities) by the Murray River in River Red Gum and Brown Box forest.

Off the Nathalia Road (good gravel) from Stewarts Bridge for 14k There are occasional formed tracks leading to and along the river, permitting secluded camping, some with small beaches.

Over the last 3k the Nathalia Rd runs close to the river with some level sites 50-200m off the road, offering high level sites above the river - useful for wet weather camping.

Bird life is plentiful, especially white cockatoos.
