Camping area description

Tallangatta Camping Area 1 provides walk-in camping and fishing on the banks of the Mitta Mitta River, approximately 33 km south of Tallangatta, and 6 km north east of Tallandoon, with pedestrian access off Yabba Road (refer to the map below).

This camping area is on a licensed Crown water frontage that has been designated for camping. Before visiting this site, find out about camping on licensed Crown water frontages.

The camping area is a 500 m walk over stock fencing and along mostly flat and clear water frontage. The camping area is mostly flat with excellent access to the river.

Camping is only permitted in a specifically designated area on this frontage (see map below). Other areas of Crown water frontage can be accessed for recreational activities other than camping, such as fishing, walking, and picnicking.

Crown water frontages are rough and rugged bush camp areas. Before you go, it is important you consider all potential risks and hazards when accessing and camping at this location. Campers are responsible for their own safety and the safety of those in their care.

  • Stormy and windy weather increases the risk that trees and limbs may fall.

  • Cattle may be present on this water frontage and access the river.
  • If cattle approach you, avoid sudden movements and loud noises.

  • Store your food in a secure container to avoid attracting livestock and other animals.
  • Leave all gates as you find them.
