The headwaters of the Murray River flow from the river's source in the Australian Alps to Corowa for around 450 river kilometres and feature varied terrain, which extends from the gently undulating farming land of the Albury District, through rugged, timbered, hill and mountain country to the alpine grasslands of the Snowy Mountains.

The Murray River then meanders in a shallow channel across the Riverine Plains through gently undulating country, becoming flatter to the west. The Golden Rivers Region stretches northward, with the river running through long stretches of natural bushland, encircling the country's largest inland island, Gunbower and spilling into countless lakes and waterways. Fishing and birdwatching are very rewarding pursuits around this area.

The reserve continues, at intervals, all the way to the Malllee.The River Murray Reserve protects natural and cultural attractions of the area along the river. Linked by the majestic beauty of the Murray River, the reserve features towering River Red Gums, tranquil riverside settings with sandy beaches, wide expanses of water and colourful red cliffs. 

There are many excellent camping and picnic sites along the Murray and its sandy beaches are very popular over the summer and Easter holidays. No facilities other than occasional picnic tables and fireplaces are provided.

Avoid resting, picnics or camping under or close to trees. They may drop heavy branches at any time without warning. Find out more about how to avoid tree risks here.
