Camping and Canoeing on the Upper Murray River Past Walwa

About 21 km from the beautiful small country town of Walwa on the Victorian side of the upper Murray River you will find the Clarkes Lagoon Reserve Campground. We will meet there on the Friday evening or the Saturday morning by 9am

From Albury Wodonga it will take you approximately 1.5 hours to get there depending on the route you take. Google Maps will provide you with the information - follow this link

Camping is free at Clarks Reserve - there are no facilities however so we will come equipped with all the gear we have at Bundalong ie toilets, tables, gazebo etc

Cost of kayak, pfd and paddle hire for the weekend is $50

A 15 - 20 km one way paddle is planned for the Saturday. We will put the boats in at Clarks reserve and paddle downstream to Neils Bend and get picked up to return to the campsite. On the Sunday we will consider paddling from Tintaldra to Neils Bend which is about 25km - a decision will be made after reviewing the progress made on Saturday and the river levels.

The camping reserve is listed as site #58 in the Towong Shire Guide to Free Campsites in NE Victoria and dogs on lead are allowed.
