Shaws Flat camping area
This camping spot is only 7 km north of Rutherglen, forcing visitors to choose between another swim or more fishing, and a trip to a local winery for a glass of fine wine and a long lunch – tough decisions must be made. From the Murray Valley Hwy just east of Rutherglen, head north on Gooramadda Rd and, just past the Barkly St turn-off, stay left rather than following Gooramadda Rd north-east – this becomes Shaws Flat Rd.

This campsite is located in Murray River – Bundalong to Barnawartha North
The stretch of the Murray River between the old town of Barnawartha and the equally well-aged township of Bundalong harbours numerous small reserves where you can pitch a tent in the bush – so long as the tent is set up at least 20 m from any watercourse, that is. If you like wine, the vineyards around nearby Rutherglen may tempt you away from the riverbank. Signposted access roads appear frequently along the Murray Valley Hwy.
