There are many other recreational areas along the banks of the Murray and chances are you'll find your own pristine river beach to enjoy. Wildlife abounds from this life giving water source - you could spot a platypus scrabbling for yabbies in the shallows near the river bank, watch as wood ducks wade through the water, or see a rainbow bee-eater perform aerial feats in the hunt for its insect dinner!
