Cobrawonga Island access restored
Friday 4 May, 2018
Parks Victoria is pleased to welcome back visitors to popular fishing and camping site Cobrawonga Island in the Murray River Reserve.
The island’s only access has been restored with the completion of structural work to the Cobrawonga Bridge.
Cobrawonga Island is popular for camping, fishing and bird watching on the Murray River between Cobram and Yarrawonga. With the bridge reopening, visitors can again enjoy the sandy beaches of this quiet and secluded spot on the Murray River
Parks Victoria has worked with local contractors to replace the bridge’s damaged surface using custom cut timber.
Cobrawonga Island regularly floods and Cobrawonga Track is subject to seasonal road closures effective from the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June until Melbourne Cup weekend in November.
