Glenelg and Wannon River Junction

03 5581 2070

Take a peaceful stroll along the Junction Walking track to the very spot where the Wannon River ends its journey and merges with the Glenelg River.

The total length of the Wannon River is approximately 220 kilometres, joining with the Glenelg River at Sandford, just out of Casterton. By the time the Glenelg reaches Nelson (almost 100 kilometres further south-west) it is indeed a mighty river.

Of historic importance is the role of the river in the early settlement of the area by the Henty Brothers. The main land use along the river is production of sheep for wool. Other land uses include production of sheep for prime lambs and cattle for beef.

A picnic table and chairs under the shade of magnificent River Red Gums will provide a welcome shady rest area by the Junction.
