Marlo & Cape Conran (Vic)

We selected Marlo as the last stop of our trip (maplink) as we had not been there before and had heard so many good stories about it, so booked into the Marlo Ocean Views Caravan Park for 3 nights.

First thing we discovered upon arrival was the welcoming party of millions of mosquitoes. It was real bad, with plenty of “deet” filled spraying of exposed body parts. Marlo is at the mouth of the mighty Snowy River and the estuary opening had just been opened; 1st time in about 8 months. The backup of fresh water in the estuary was apparently the cause of the mozzie plague.

Took a drive out to Cape Conran Coastal Park to check it out. A beautiful place with some a nature walk along the coastline at Sailors Grave (maplink). The boat ramp at Salmon Rocks (maplink) was a pretty dangerous looking spot with heaps of massive kelp over the jetty and beach.
