More information
Euston Lock & Weir 15 Drive
The Euston Lock & Weir 15 Drive is a leisurely bush drive on a well graded track less than five minutes out of Euston. Take the road to the historical Euston Cemetery towards the Lock & Weir about 2.6 kilometres. There are countless restful places to stop off once you reach the River. It’s a favourite place for fishing below the Lock and a great observation point for the fish ladder.
Pump Road River Drive
The Pump Road River Drive is a leisurely bush drive on an ungraded track less than five minutes out of Robinvale. There are countless restful places to stop off at during the 10 kilometre loop.
Drive your way along a truly Australian stretch of natural bush. The River almost never leaves your view on this drive.
Because the area is Murray River Reserve and managed by Parks Victoria, this means you are welcome to simply drive through and picnic for a while, or stay in the forest at your leisure enjoying a unique bush experience.
Notice the changes in soil colour, vegetation and bird life throughout the drive. The soil close to the River is nutrient rich, being on the lower flood plain. The River Red Gums form thick groves. As the land elevates, the vegetation and soil change again to a combination of soil profiles, where black box trees and lignum bush thrive. The next elevation is of sandy, red soil which Wattle trees and Murray Pines prefer.
As for bird life, there is variety also. Kingfishers, kookaburras, pelicans, black swans, parrots, jays, brown gibbons and cranes all live in the area of this drive.
The end of the drive leads you to a sealed road about three kilometres upstream from where you started. Refer to the yellow lines on the map below as a guide.
Please note, this drive is not advisable during wet weather.
