Berri is at the northern end of the Murray River National Park, The Katarapko section. The park is one of the Riverland’s most popular park for camping, fishing and kayaking. A perfect place to rest and relax.

Easy to find, as there is lots of signage. The campsites are great - clearly marked and good access to the river. Great for a place to relax, but fishing wasn’t the best.

Katarapko Creek is just so peaceful. All the campsites are spread along the creek so you're not camping right next to someone else. We're locals and our favourite campsite is only 20 minutes drive from Berri. We like paddling on Katarapko creek rather than the...More

Just off the Sturt Highway between Barmera and Waikerie is a lazy undiscovered stretch of The Murray at Wigley Flat. You can go for miles either up or downstream without another boat in view for days. Lots of spectacular cliffs, beaches and river gums with...More

What a find..with an array of camp sites along the river with shady secluded settings to park your van or pitch a tent. Watch the height with bigger vans as low hanging trees in sine locations. Great place for kayaking and fishing and in the...More

Excellent camping at spots on the river, take a map, study it, look for concave bends so you'll have a sandy beach and shallow water for swimming. You don't always need a 4wd, but go slow and don't take risks. Inform people where you are...More

Katarapko in the Murray River National Park is a favourite camping and kayaking spot for us. There are plenty of sites sitting alongside the river, which never seem to be busy even on bank holidays. Katarapko Creek is great for kayaking as there are very...More
