Information

Mullaroo Creek Camping Area is situated just upstream of the Mullaroo Junction on the banks of the Lindsay River provides a quiet location for camping, fishing, boating and exploring the remote area.

This section of Mullaroo Creek has acquired the name "The Caravan" for good reasons. Well over 40 years ago before Lindsay Island became part of the Murray-Sunset National Park, this was a very remote part of Victoria that saw very few people venture and make the long trip into this area. However, Geoff and Dot Dempsey from Renmark used to visit here regularly for fishing and left their caravan permanently on site here. The locals changed the name of this good fishing spot from the "Mullaroo" that all the local fisherman knew, to quite simply "The Caravan", and any instructions of going fishing were quite simple, we will meet you at "The Caravan".

The Area above Mullaroo Creek is very flat and timbered, making it the perfect place for a camp, and being large enough to handle a very large crowd. It was not uncommon for the Dempsey's to have very large groups of friends and family out camping here.

Access is by 4WD in dry weather only. No fees or bookings are required.

Visitor Tips: This is a remote area with no mobile reception. Campers must be self-sufficient and carry all the water and provisions they need. Please practise minimal impact camping and observe relevant fire regulations. Fires are permitted only where fireplaces are provided and must be extinguished with water before leaving. Please bring your own firewood or a gas or electric stove or barbecue.

Campsites should be at least 20m from the river. Avoid camping under or close to large trees like River Red Gums, as branches may fall at any time and swing away from the tree. Chemical toilets are preferred. Pit toilets must be at least 100m from the water’s edge. Bury toilet paper and waste appropriately. No bins are provided – please take all rubbish home with you for recycling or disposal.
