1534 on the Murray - Private Murray River frontage

Bedrooms 3
Property type cottage


About the property

Unique, private cottage overlooking one of the best river locations Barham has to offer.

This 3 bedroom cottage has all the amenities normally found in a family home - split system air conditioning and a wood heater add to the comfort.

The cottage is part of a lifestyle property set on 30 acres and has direct access to the Murray River and red gum forests. It is about 10km from the township of Barham.

Birdlife abounds - kookaburras, finches, rosellas, babblers. The state forest is right next door ready for exploring on foot or by bike. Or perhaps you might feel like an evening paddle on the Murray river.

Pastimes may include bird watching, bushwalking, bike riding, canoeing and fishing.

Linen & towels are provided.

Guests will have access to the cottage and surrounds, including undercover parking. Property access may be available upon request.

As this is a natural environment boarded by the Murray River and there is no fencing around the house or along the River EXTRA CARE is required by guests with small children - especially toddlers.

Pets are considered on request only and there is a kennel on the property which is available.


The cottage consists of 3 bedrooms. Bedroom 1 has 1xQueen size bed, bedroom 2 has 1xQueen size bed and 1xsingle bed with a trundle, bedroom 3 has 1xsingle bed. The bathroom has a huge shower, bath and laundry facilities. The living area is open plan with a large kitchen and cosy dining room and lounge with a wood heater. With a BBQ and outdoor setting al fresco dining is easy.

Fabulous, wonderful, peaceful part of the planet

  • 5 of 5

Thank you so much Bill and Karin for generously making your property available for lucky people like us to enjoy. We felt totally at home from the minute we arrived ... and the cottage is beautifully furnished with absolutely everything you could possibly need provided. You hear the words 'home away from home' often, but your property is a true representation of this. You guys were an absolute pleasure to deal with and we will definitely be recommending 1534 on the Murray to all we know. Also, a big thanks to Murray for allowing Clancy, Cooper & Sweetie to invade his territory!! We'll certainly be seeing you again.

Relaxing place to say

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time. The house was literally a few meters away from the Murray river. Every morning we awoke to golden light filtering through the nearby gum trees and the soft chirping of the superb wrens in the garden. The owners Karin and Bill (and Robbie) were very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The place was very clean, beds comfy, towels soft and pantry and kitchen well stocked with utensils and basics. We would happily stay here again.

Excellent, Comfortable & Relaxing!!

  • 5 of 5

Excellent stay!! Owners and Robbie were friendly and welcoming. Accommodation was clean and the owners stocked everything we needed to enjoy our stay and more!! Plenty of space and love how close the river was to the house which made for great fishing. Also the fire pit and good supply of firewood was great!!
