Dispersed bush camping in River Red Gum and Black Box floodplain woodland with patches of saline scrubland.
Popular (sites bare, tracks may be rutted). Sites level and generally shaded. High sandy river banks with few beaches. River is broad, height being maintained by the lock. Bird life is prolific - cockatoos, galahs, rosellas, parrots and honeyeaters are common - but a major attraction are the waterbirds (pelicans, swans, herons and ducks) on the large billabong. Riverside camping permitted within the Kings Billabong Wildlife Reserve between the River Track and the Murray River just upstream (south) and then downstream (north) of the historic Psyche Bend Pumping Station around Greens Bend to Bruces Bend Marina with a separate area upstream near the RedCliffis Boat Ramp Information Board and boat ramp at Bruce's Bend, Information Board and pit toilets at Psyche Pumps, boat ramp near Redcliffs A rather disappointing, worn camp - but handy to Mildura. Rated 3.9/5
