It’s a sealed road, up to the very end, then it’s 10 km of dirt road. Take caution when travelling through the forest, due to kangaroos, it’s not fenced. A tranquil caravan park, with peaceful surroundings. We stayed two nights. The owner is very welcoming...More

Technically the location is incorrect. These pics are of the Murray River but on Victoria side not NSW. This side is very beautiful and it’s so nice to walk along to this view. Gorgeous location Mildura bridge.
