Barmah National Park
Situated between Cobram and Echuca, the 28 521-hectare Barmah National Park is filled with some beautiful sandy beaches. One section of the park is situated on a flood plain and has 112 kilometres of protected Murray River frontage with tall river red gums bent over the riverbanks. It’s possible to paddle from Cobram all the way to Echuca; some of the highlights are Ulupna Island and the amazing number of bends between Cobram and Barmah Lake. Birdlife is in abundance with spoonbills and huge flocks of corellas. Consider a multi-day trip, as there are many places to camp on the way. You can also fish and build your own campfire.
