Wood Wood the small town on the Murray Valley Hwy
Wood Wood (Victoria)
Wood Wood, Murray Valley Highway, 36 km from Swan Hill. Beside the road in this small town is an easily identified, isolated, Aboriginal Canoe Tree which has been identified by the Victorian Archaeological Survey as a scarred tree. From such trees the Aborigines made canoes, shields, containers and shelters.
Gillicks Landing (Major Mitchell Trail) About 1 km off the Murray Valley Highway approximately 33 km from Swan Hill, and clearly signposted, is another Major Mitchell campsite. The entry is through a gate and along a dirt track to the river. There is a fireplace and picnic table for day visits and secluded sites for overnight camping. Mitchell camped here 18 June 1836.
