30th October 2009 - Bourkes Bend State Forest - Cobram / Yarrawonga District

Accessed from the Murray Valley Highway at 19k West of Yarrawonga or 18k South East of Cobram, these 3 campsites all front the Murray River. Campsite No. 1, we found to be the most ideal although there are no facilities provided and is restricted to Self Contained Camping.

Campsite No 3 is listed in Camps Australia Wide No. 5 Site No. Vic. - 302.
Camps Australia Wide No. 6 Site No. V- 300
GPS: 35°59'53.0"S - 145°49'34.0"E,

The other sites are not listed in Camps Australia Wide

Campsite No 2 has a table and is smaller than sites 1 and 3.
The access to the river is not as good as Site 1.

Campsite No 3 has a pit toilet, and is a large level area with easy access to the river,
but not as good as Camp Site No 1

All sites have shade and very pleasant outlooks. Swimming and boating is permitted although fishing in the river is prohibited from September to November inclusive.

The tracks to the campsites are a bit rough but with care, and when dry,
it’s not too much of a problem
