Bimbimbi is now open until May 2024. Bimbimbi has 3km of access to the Murray River at its clear, free-flowing beginning, with views of Snowy Mountains. This is our piece of paradise that we love and we are happy to share it with others. We have 5 camping locations, all with access to the river, but set back from the crown land that borders the river banks. Each of them is for a single group only. Some of them are big enough to accommodate a lot of people. The number of cars is usually not an issue. The Big Bend is the most open camping site suitable for larger groups. Access to the river for swimming is good. This site is accessible to 2-wheel drive vehicles. The Fishing Hole is our most remote location, accessible during the summer by high clearance 2-wheel drive vehicles but 4-wheel drive is highly recommended. There is good access to the river here for swimming. This site is clothing optional. You are basically on your own in a remote place. Wear whatever you like, including nothing at all. River Red Gums is a single campsite, also remote and primitive, accessible by high clearance 2-wheel drive vehicles during dry weather. Again, 4 wheel drive is recommended. Access to the river is easy and the bank slopes gently down making it a great place for swimming. This site is also clothing optional. The Old Pump Hole is upstream of all the other camp sites. It is the easiest to access. Most vehicles will get to this site. The bank here is steeper so swimming is not as easy. However, always improvising, campers at this location jump in here with their li-los, inner tubes and other flotation devices and float down to The Big Bend, get out and then come back and do it again. This is an area set on a small hill overlooking the river, as shown in the photos. The Willows, our newest site, is between The Big Bed and River Red Gums, set under the shade of some willows a few metres from the river bank. The bank here is also steep, but again, campers can hop into the river here and float down to River Red Gums, or walk either to River Red Gums or The Big Bend for swimming. The Willows is also clothing optional. The campsites are well spaced out, with a minimum of 200 metres between the nearest two locations. In fact, it either impossible or very difficult to see anyone else at the other camp sites from your own camp site. Each camp site is accessible via its own track, so you won't have other vehicles driving past your camp site. We have a Leave No Trace policy, please take all rubbish with you. (This also means not throwing bottles, cans, bottle tops, aluminium foil and other non-biodegradable items into the camp fire.) Dogs are allowed, but please keep them under control, particularly if near cattle. Campfires are allowed only in braziers provided, when fire bans are not in place. You can gather your own firewood or purchase firewood from us (see "Extras"). Please arrive before dark if you haven't been here before. It is difficult to understand a new camp site in the dark. We provide a toilet at each location, for your convenience and the cleanliness of the camp site in general. Nothing but your human deposit and toilet paper in the toilet please. No disposable wipes, nappies etc. Please put these in your trash. Also, bring your drone but use it only over locations that are not occupied. We have canoes for rental and seasonal produce is available from the garden. And, again, wood for purchase if you don't want to gather your own. Please see "Extras"

River Red Gums
Private Wonderful Campsite
Ian is the best host, helpful and generous with his veggies when in season. They were so yummy. The area has magnificient scenery with Corryong town approx 20 nin drive. The river rises and falls as controlled by Snowy Hydro but doesnt affect the enjoyment of it andcthevfishing is good. The site was freshly mown and there was some firewood for the campfire. Would I revisit? Most definitely We will become return visitors to this Hipcamp as it is one of tge best. The night skies were unbelieveable. In 10 days we only saw 2 small boats fishing and that was about 10 mins in total out of our stay. Ian is very helpful but leaves you to enjoy unless you need anything. Overall this campsite is a 10 plus for us.

River Red Gums
Beautiful spot! Right on the Murray … couldn’t get much better. There were other campers around but it still felt very secluded. Stayed for three nights and could have stayed more. Thanks Ian and Olga!

The Fishing Hole
Another fantastic trip.
Another fabulous weekend camping at The Fishing Hole on Ian’s Hipcamp site. We have been returning to Ian’s property regularly for 4 years now and we will be back. Ian is a great host, always answering questions and always amenable (wherever possible), he is friendly and helpful. The fishing hole is peaceful, beautiful and spacious. Swimming and fishing is great at this spot.

River Red Gums
Riverside Retreat
We recently had the pleasure to once again stay at Bimbimbi River Camp for 4 nights. The location is perfect - nestled right on the banks of the majestic Murray River which saw us catching plenty of the famous Murray Cod, kayaking and paddle boarding. Wonderful host Ian could not have been more accommodating - freshly mowing our chosen tent site and sharing fresh produce from the farm garden. This was our 3rd trip to Bimbimbi and definitely not our last- our favourite spot on the Murray by far!
