Dead River Beach has an extended beach backed by a green grassed level bank shaded by stands of immature River Red Gums.

It continues around into an old horseshoe bend which the river now bypasses (land to the west, on the new south bank of the Murray, is in NSW). Surrounded by River Red Gum flood plain forest. Prolific bird life, some cattle grazing.

Rated 4.3/5

Access is possible on the Cobram Track west (downstream) to Davies Beach, Stewart's Beaches 1&2 and Wilsons Beach (all backed by dryer, open forest) and further west to Bretnalls and Green Beaches.
