Murrayville, possibly most peaceful, cheapest, greenest caravan park in Australia

In the heart of the Mallee Murrayville Caravan Park says it is possibly the most peaceful, cheapest and greenest caravan park in Australia.

Up the main street, just past the swimming pool there are eight powered sites and unpowered sites for campers to enjoy the experience.

GSA rolled into the caravan park after leaving the sunny banks of Lake Boga, near Swan Hill bound for Victor Harbour SA to attend the  annual SA Caravan  Parks conference.

It was a bad day to travel towing a 21ft caravan. GSA drove into the big low pressure system coming over from Western Australia and coped a severe head/side wind all the way.  But the rig towed excellently although the diesel Ford Ranger’s fuel consumption increased from around its normal 15 – 16litres a 100km to a bit over 19 litres 100 km towing at 90 kmh.

Alan Pam and Chloe stayed at Murrayville Caravan Park, a little place near the footy ground about two streets back from the highway.  It has barbecue, laundry, powered sites, unpowered, water, disabled facilities, fantastic amenities and showers, is pet friendly and all for $9.90 per night for two people and one dog. “

“At this rate, we can afford to spend some money locally and go to the pub for a $13 counter meal!”, Alan said .

“Who says tourists don’t bring money to their towns.  I will have to put another $100 of diesel in too after our heavy weather towing job”.

”There is good mobile reception and broadband (although a little slow) but no TV reception at all. Everyone else here is using a sat dish.  Perhaps we should visit someone?”, he said

Murrayville is located 22km east of the South Australian border on the Mallee Highway in the heart of the unique Mallee country in north-west Victoria. Murrayville is in an agricultural corridor bounded on the north by the vast Murray-Sunset National Park and on the south by the Big Desert Wilderness Park. It is described as the ‘Gateway to the Victorian Outback.

The pioneers of Murrayville were luckier than others in the Mallee because, despite having low rainfall, the area has reliable underground water.

The region has a Mediterranean climate with low humidity and high sunlight hours (more than Queensland’s Gold Coast). The average daily temperature for summer in the region is 30.8º Celsius and in winter 15º Celsius.’

From July to December the local bush is ablaze with wildflowers, wattle in bloom and hop bushes covered in colourful seed pods. No need for a four-wheel drive - some of the area's best wildflowers grow within the town perimeter. The Pine Hill Walking Trail in town takes in an abundance of native flora and birdlife. It takes about two hours to complete although there is a shorter track.
