If you love camping and the Australian bush, but are not too keen on putting up tents and setting up the camp, then River Country Adventours has the tour for you.
Everything is completely set up prior to your arrival at the Wyuna campsite which is just over two hours due North from Melbourne and 25 kilometres East of Echuca on the Murray Valley Highway. All you need to bring is the bedding and food for the camp,
Once arriving at Wyuna you will be escorted to the camp.
The next morning you will be driven the appropriate distance upstream and you can spend as much time as you like slowly paddling back to the campsite.
The next morning after another fabulous night in the bush you paddle off downstream to "Yambuna" bridge, where you will be met and driven back to the campsite to pack up and head home.
