We've camped twice for a week each time at Merbein Common, away from the day visit area. It is peaceful, and a great way to connect with nature. Access roads in can be difficult after rain, so be aware.

A fair bit of rubbish left behind by other travellers. Great that it's free though. Sunrise was pretty reflecting on the Murray.

A nice spot on the banks of the Murray river for free camping. Fires and pets allowed. Though a word of warning, don't be too trusting. We had some visitors in our camp,while we were away, but luckily had chained the generator up, noticed it...More
