Access 5-6 Camping Areas (River Murray Reserve)

Camp at Access 5 & 6 Camping Areas and take in the beauty of the more remote areas of the Murray-Sunset National Park. Canoe along the Murray River, go for a swim or just relax at base. No fees or bookings are required. Access is by 4WD in dry weather only. A picnic table is available at the eastern end of the camping area.

Visitor Tips: This is a remote area with no mobile reception. Campers must be self-sufficient and carry all the water and provisions they need. Please practise minimal impact camping and observe relevant fire regulations. Fires are permitted only where fireplaces are provided and must be extinguished with water before leaving. Please bring your own firewood or a gas or electric stove or barbecue.

Campsites should be at least 20m from the river. Avoid camping under or close to large trees like River Red Gums, as branches may fall at any time and swing away from the tree. Chemical toilets are preferred. Pit toilets must be at least 100m from the water’s edge. Bury toilet paper and waste appropriately. No bins are provided – please take all rubbish home with you for recycling or disposal. Download the Lindsay, Mulcra and Wallpolla Islands Visitor Guide for more information.

Richardson's Bend - Area Closed due to flood damage

Richardson's Bend is currently closed - Due to severe flooding Richardson's Bend Murray River Reserve sustained substantial damage to the track network.  This area will remain closed until repairs can be undertaken and access tracks reinstated.

Gunbower National Park and Murray River Reserve flood impacted areas

Recent flooding is impacting on access to several sites within Gunbower National Park and the Murray River Reserve. Some roads and visitor sites are temporarily closed until floodwaters recede and sites can be assessed as safe. Tree-fall may be an ongoing issue with wet soils and strong winds.

Flooding has resulted in poor road conditions in the area and 4WD access is recommended.
A detour is in place at McClure Bend due to standing flood water. Access tracks across the State Forest may also be closed due to flood water. For safety reasons, do not drive through flood waters or past road closures.
