Stanton’s Bend 

Moodemere Road Rutherglen Victoria

Stanton's Bend is a large popular reserve just a few kilometres to the west of Rutherglen.

An attractive setting on a wide expanse of river 'Stanton's' is popular with visitors and locals alike. A long stretch of sandy river beach offers safe swimming (the usual Murray River warnings apply), and the low cliffs rising just downstream of the reserve makes for a stunning visual backdrop.

How to get there
