You just have to look at the photograph to see why this spot made our list. Right on Lake Mulwala, the kilometre of shoreline has walking tracks and designated areas for bush camping.
For fishing and boating enthusiasts, it comes highly recommended. Camp beside these ghostly river red gums, and you might just catch some Murray Cod, Trout Cod, Golden Perch (Yellow Belly), Silver Perch or Murray Crayfish. Note that a NSW recreational fishing licence is required for the Murray River.
Alternatively, if you are just after a peaceful setting with wonderful birdlife – this is for you!
Facilities are few at this free camp, but there’s shade, mobile phone coverage and it is suitable for big rigs and pets.
