A large river-side reserve, with a grassed open paddock by the road and tiered river flats by the river where white trunked Manna Gums, willow and wattle provide some shade to grassed sites.
Features long pebbly river beaches and a pleasant rural outlook. The lower river flats are not visible from the little used road 300m away.
May be crowded over holiday periods. Cattle and/or seep may be grazed to keep the grass down.
Caution: Very fast flowing river suitable ONLY for strong swimmers. Minors should not be allowed to swim and must be supervised at all times.
* Lovely spot, with great fishing (permit required)
* Take care in rainy times as area can flood
* Don't miss the Hume Weir dam and Bethanga Bellbridge
* Fires permitted when no restrictions, bring your own firewood.
* Cattle are present, but don't cause a major concern.
* If fishing, you need a NSW fishing licence. See http://www.depi.vic.gov.au/fishing-and-hunting/fishing-guides/inland-angling-guide/special-articles/murray-river-nsw for more information
