Driving Directions

From Mathoura, take Jones Road to Picnic Point Road for approx 5km to Millewa Road (just past the Reed Bed Bird Hide sign), then approx 2.5km along a very good dirt road to the Picnic and Campground. Drive past the day-use area along the well formed dirt road.

There are two cleared camp areas on the right and another on the left. Continue to the right, past the toilets and the road ends at the main campground.

Edward River Campground is free and suitable for caravans, motorhomes and tents. Dogs are allowed as it is just outside the National Park. Long drop toilets, no potable water.
The campground is arranged in a number of small private camping areas, some on the edge of the river and each having room for a couple of vans or tents. The area is wooded with tall eucalyptus trees providing dappled shade throughout the campground.

Take an energising walk along the Edward River or relax with a book under the shade of a river red gum. There are plenty of great spots to cast your line or put the kayak in and paddle.

If you need water there's a drinking tap/fountain in the skate park behind the information centre in Mathoura. Otherwise there's a tap outside the water treatment plant on Picnic Point Road which you'll pass on your way to the Edward River Campground when going from Mathoura.

Rubbish bins are provided at the picnic area near the entrance. A second loo is available at the end of the camping areas. There are several reasonably large camp areas if you follow the main tracks. The rangers request that you camp in cleared areas and not venture off the made tracks.

The Rangers advise that the campground is very popular in school holidays and Easter, but at other times it is very quiet and tranquil.

Mathoura is only a few Km away if you need to pick up some supplies.
