Gunbower Island camping area (bush camping)
Only a few of the many bush-camping sites on Gunbower Island have any facilities – one to note is the toilet with disabled access near Twin Bridges. Canoeing and swimming in the (often cold) water of the Murray River are the preferred activities here. A walking track circumnavigates the island; allow about 7 hrs for the round trip. Note: dogs are allowed into some parts of Gunbower and not others - call ahead to check. Also, formal campsites will be established in the park over the next couple of years.

This campsite is located in Gunbower National Park
Measuring 50 km in length, Gunbower National Park is on Gunbower Island, framed by the Murray River to the east and Gunbower Creek to the west. Most of the island is covered in river red gum and black box forest, within which over 100 peaceful bush-camping sites are secreted. The island extends between Torrumbarry and Koondrook, and tracks lead to it from various points along the Murray Valley Hwy; most visitors take Cohuna Island Rd from Cohuna.
