The Murray River 693km Camping Area is located on Lindsay Island and perfect for exploring the Murray River by boat, canoe or kayak, fishing for Murray Cod or birdwatching. Access is by 4WD in dry weather only. No fees or bookings are required.

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 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.
