Murraybank Caravan Park

Front view from our site at the Murraybank Caravan Park

Harking back to our short holiday at Murraybank, Picnic Point, this first photo (above) shows the view we had from where we set up our chairs by the fire-drum.


A galah pops down for a drink.


I find willows and water enchanting.


We left a day later than the other campers so were able to enjoy the views from every angle. I wasn’t surprised to hear that the caravan park is packed during the summer holidays and Easter.


ABOVE: The popular beach area. During summer, the bigger kids love floating downstream from Picnic Point on buoyant items, if not simply floating along in their life-jackets.  This part of the river was behind us – remember I said we had the river on three sides because it swept around. The map illustrates this – the arrow marks the office.

I can barely wait to take our camper out again in the Spring!

Thanks for dropping in.



I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

  1. First photo is picture postcard perfect. Some beautiful spots along the Murray. Why wait for spring. Years ago, yes years, usually on a long weekend, but not always, a girlfriend’s family used to have the caravan packed and ready to go friday night when everyone got home from work. The sisters were allowed to bring a friend alternatively on each trip. They would go to different parts of Victoria each time carrying the dinghy on the roof of the car and when they went to Lake Eppalock or Eildon would bring Jan’s Catamaran & pick up the motor boat from storage. An uncle would often come with them so he would tow the boat. Like a mini convoy.

    1. The Murray River holds a special place in my heart, Janet, and I can never get sick of its vista – each one more beautiful than the last. Expect to see more as we venture out with the camper again – probably sooner than I expect!
