Echuca Rotary Park is in northern Victoria, across the Murray River from Moama, in New South Wales. This is the camp when we started hearing much more about the Coronavirus break out. With that we chose to just enjoy the camp and the views and not venture out. So although It would have been nice to do the paddle steamer and tourist things we chose not to. We are now glad we didn’t, as we now know the world has changed some what.
We stayed here before border closures and lock-down!! I’ve decided to share the other camps we stayed at on our way north to Queensland. Although you can’t go camping yet! You can put them on your list for when you can 😀 We practised social distancing and only went out for food and fuel.
Echuca Rotary Park Camping
This is a huge! Place with lots of different places to park depending on what you want to look at. As you drive in you will see heaps of spots to back on to overlook the river. These have some picnic benches next to them and a water tap at the end closest to the toilets. You will also see some old farming machinery here which is cool.
A little further along and you can park along the fence line as we did. There is an old wooden shed and views of the large dirt cattle yard/oval. Not a river view but no one could park next to us and the sunset was fabulous.
The last large parking area is over the miniature railway. One part is a large open area with shade but keep driving and you are again able to look over the river. You will find a tap down in this section also.
Long drop toilets were available. I did see a new block but this might be for Echuca show days etc. A dump point is here and you will find a couple of water taps opposite to fill your tanks. The caretaker had left a hand sanitiser here to use which was a nice touch, pardon the pun 😀
Echuca Rotary Park Cost
Camping here is up to 72 hours and is by donation. They ask that you donate $10 per night. It’s up to you if you think it’s worth it but we really liked it and I’m sure you will too.
Locals come here to walk their dogs and there is a men’s shed. Although the locals were also observing social distancing they are a friendly lot which added to the nice feel of Echuca Rotary Park.
We would highly recommend this camp when you can next venture out. A great location and friendly locals!
I hope this post finds you and yours safe and well!
