Set on the banks of the beautiful Murray River in Murray Valley Regional Park, adjacent to Murray Valley National Park, Five Mile picnic area is the perfect place for a relaxing riverside picnic or a day of water sports.

In February, it's the place to be when the Southern 80 Ski Race bursts onto the river. March is a great time to try your luck fishing, during the annual fishing classic. But all year round it's a spectacular spot to relax and take in the scenery of the magnificent river red gums along the river.

Enjoy paddling along this iconic river, as well as water skiing and swimming. Also, the world-class Five Mile mountain bike trail is nearby, and since it's part of Murray Valley Regional Park, you can even bring your dog along to Five Mile picnic area – so it truly offers something for everyone.
