Shaw’s Flat

Shaws Flat Rd Rutherglen 3685

Shaw’s Flat is a relatively small reserve, but worth seeking out for its fabulous setting complete with towering River Red Gums, teeming with bird life and some great fishing spots. Being just seven kilometres from Rutherglen it can get busy during the warmer months.

 

How to get there

Located north of Rutherglen with access off Up River Road.  From Rutherglen take the Corowa-Wahgunyah Road towards Corowa and at the 9.3km turn right (east) into the signposted Up River Road.  Follow Up River Road for 6.3km to the signposted Shaws Flat Road.  Follow Shaws Flat Road north for 800m to the entrance to Shaws Flat.  Once in reserve track leads for 900m along the river with dispersed bush camping with flat grassy sites. (Lewis, C. Savage, C. 2013, ‘Camping & Caravaning guide to the Murray River’, 2nd edition, Boiling Billy Publications, Nimmitabel, NSW, p. 101)
