Gooramadda State Forest (Police Paddocks) camping area

Camper trailer Caravan access Dogs allowed Dry weather access Free No rubbish disposal Picnic area Vehicle-based camping Wood fireplace Canoeing Fishing Swimming

The Police Paddocks are so named because police horses used to have a rest in the vicinity in the late 19th century. Nowadays it’s campers who put themselves out to pasture here to take a break from heavy activity. This camping area lies only 10 km north-east of Rutherglen, so stocking up on drinks won’t be a problem.

Gooramadda is one of the many river red gum forests that border the Murray River, giving you access to plenty of swimming and fishing. Travel 2 km east of the centre of the wine-soaked township of Rutherglen, and then veer north off the Murray Valley Hwy onto Police Paddocks Rd.
