The Glenelg River is the central feature of the Lower Glenelg National Park. Along the last part of its winding 400 kilometre path to the sea the river has carved a spectacular gorge up to 50 metres deep through limestone. River erosion and the action of rainwater have created a remarkable cave.

There are great places for fishing, canoeing, camping and picnicking along the Glenelg River.

Explore Lower Glenelg and Discovery Bay on the 250 kilometre Great South West Walk, linking Portland and Nelson via the river and coast. Another highlight is the Princess Margaret Rose Cave, where you can join a guided tour of amazing limestone formations.

How to get there

Lower Glenelg National Park is in south-west Victoria adjoining the South Australian border, about 420kms from Melbourne and 490kms from Adelaide. The major access roads are the Portland - Nelson Road for south of the river or Wanwin Road for north of the river.
