Lindsay Island camping areas
Up in the park’s far north, near where the NSW and SA borders meet, is Lindsay Island. Its flood plains, fed by Murray River overflow waters carried here along numerous creeks, sustain diverse birdlife and a mammal with the implausible name of paucident planigale. Pick your own shady campsite. Anglers will concentrate on the golden perch and Murray cod swimming in the Lindsay River and Mullaroo Creek, while others will seek the Murray lily, Victoria’s biggest flower. Look for the signposted access road west of Meringur North on the Sturt Hwy. Note: all tracks on the island are accessible only in dry weather.

This campsite is located in Murray-Sunset National Park
Wedged up in the far north-western corner of Victoria, this is a gloriously isolated, undisturbed region of sand dunes, salt lakes and wide-open mallee country. At 677 000 ha it is one of the state’s biggest protected areas, and offers outback tracks suitable for a 4WD and bushwalking around the spectacular Pink Lakes. Access is off the Sturt Hwy and Millewa Rd from the north, the Calder Hwy in the east, and the Mallee Hwy in the south. A 4WD is needed for most of the park’s tracks.
