Corringle Foreshore Reserve, also known as Corringle Slips, is a relatively natural camping area close to the beach. Pit toilets, including a disabled access toilet close to the day visitor area, picnic tables and fireside barbeques are available.

Visitors are encouraged to be self sufficient with drinking water. Carry it in and/or know how to make untreated water safe for drinking.

Water and boating activities can be enjoyed within the estuary, at Mots Beach, Sampsons Beach and up from the Marlo jetty. Swimming is not advised as the ocean beach at Corringle is unsafe due to strong rips and currents. Surf fishing is very popular. The most common fish caught are Salmon, Tailor and Gummy Shark. A concrete boat ramp is located at the slips, providing access to the Snowy River estuary.

An amateur fishing licence is required for all waters in Victoria including ocean fishing. Areas sheltered from the wind and suitable for canoeing include the Corringle Slips backwater and Frenchs Narrows. The walking track from the picnic area takes in the Snowy River backwater providing access to the beach.


Corringle Foreshore Reserve has a relatively natural campground close to the beach. Facilities include pit toilets, including a disabled access toilet close to the day visitor area, picnic tables and fireside barbecues. A limited supply of untreated tank water is available. 

Advance bookings and payment are required year round.

Gunaikurnai Joint Management Plan

The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owner Land Management Board (GKTOLMB) are currently developing a Joint Management Plan in consultation with Parks Victoria and the Department of Environment Land, Water and Planning. The plan will cover the ten parks and reserves for which the Gunaikurnai have gained Aboriginal Title as a result of the 2010 Traditional Owners Land Management Agreement.

The plan will supersede any existing plans and set out objectives for achieving sustainable management within the existing legal framework and in accordance with recognised management principles. It will also provide strategic and operational direction for the ongoing management of these parks and reserves. 

If you would like to be involved please visit The draft plan is due to be released for public comment toward the end of 2015.


Aboriginal Traditional Owners


The Gunaikurnai Traditional Owners' strong connection with the land has been legally recognised in a settlement agreement that enables them to jointly manage 10 parks in Eastern Victoria, including  Corringle Foreshore Reserve.


Parks Victoria acknowledges the Aboriginal Traditional Owners of Victoria - including its parks and reserves. Further information is available from Aboriginal Affairs Victoria AAV and Native Title Services Victoria
