Barmah is a very small village of 250 people situated 239km north of Melbourne. The Barmah Caravan Park
has 121 sites of which 50 are for tourist camping and 5 powered for caravans. The park is situated on the banks of the Murray River with enormous towering red gums and warning signs everywhere not to camp under any of them. Red gums have a bad habit of spontaneously dropping branches and are also known as widow-makers. The park has some nice facilities but there are a lot of run down permanent dwellings. It's probably good for camping but not really worth stopping if you are towing a caravan. The resident managers are Brian and Cheryl Ellis. Bookings can be made by telephoning the park
and please tell them that you have seen their photos on Caravan Park Photos. Photos on this page were taken on 23rd May 2006.
