Overview
More
Come and explore the three separate areas that make up Murray River National Park. Katarapko, Lyrup Flats and Bulyong Island cover more than 13,000 hectares and conserve the verdant Murray wetlands that flow through the park. The Katarapko area features floodplains and several wetlands. The area is an important breeding area for native wildlife, including waterbirds, and is an ideal place for birdwatching. Lyrup Flats encompasses 2,000 hectares along the floodplain on the northern side of the river and provides wonderful opportunities for birdwatching and fishing. You can take your dog for a walk in the Lyrup Flats area of the park providing it is on a lead. Bulyong Island is only accessible by boat. The island is home to a number of wildlife species, such as the western grey kangaroos, emus, pelicans, kingfishers and parrots.

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

We enjoyed Easter Long Weekend at Katarapko Nat'l Park. Fortunately we arrived Wednesday before the holidays. By Friday every site was taken, many by large groups. Our site was very large and quite private, as most were. The road get rougher the further you venture...More

HI Jen, there isn't an absolute prohibition on generators in the Murray River National Park (Katarapko is one section of the park), but the basic guideline is that they can't be disturbing other campers in any way... More
