You’re never far from the river at Benarca. Relax on the riverbank under the majestic river red gums, cook up a barbeque or cast a line.

Benarca campgrounds are sprawled within Benarca Forest, a large 206 hectare area. With the hum of cicadas and corellas and the majestic Australian river red gums, it's hard not to feel immersed in nature. The 9 Benarca campgrounds offer impressive views of Murray River from your tent, campervan or caravan site.

Enjoy a walk along the river, mountain bike ride at the nearby Five Mile mountain bike trail, or a spot of birdwatching. For those who don't mind getting their feet wet, there's paddling, fishing and swimming. Its location, in Murray Valley Regional Park, means it's dog-friendly too, so your four-legged friends are welcome to join in on the family camping trip.

The town of Moama is nearby, so it’s easy to pop in for an evening meal or to pick up some supplies. You'll also find museums and galleries, and it's the place to book a trip along the Murray on a paddle steamer.
