Murray River Reserve from Snowy Mountains to Corowa

Murray River Reserves (Victoria/NSW)

River Murray Reserves


The headwaters of the Murray River flow from the river's source in the Australian Alps to Corowa for around 450 river kilometres and feature varied terrain, extending from the gently undulating farming land of the Albury District, through rugged, timbered, hill and mountain country to the alpine grasslands of the Snowy Mountains.

The Murray River then meanders in a shallow channel across the Riverine Plains through gently undulating country, becoming flatter to the west. The Golden Rivers Region stretches northward, with the river running through long stretches of natural bushland, encircling the country's largest inland island, Gunbower Island and spilling into countless lakes and waterways. Fishing and birdwatching are very rewarding pursuits around this area.

The reserve continues, at intervals, all the way to the Malllee. The Murray River Reserves protect natural and cultural attractions along the river. Linked by the majestic beauty of the Murray River, the reserves feature towering River Red Gums, tranquil riverside settings with sandy beaches, wide expanses of water and colourful red cliffs. 

There are many excellent camping and picnic sites along the Murray and its sandy beaches are very popular over the summer and Easter holidays. No facilities other than occasional picnic tables and fireplaces are provided.
