Glenelg River Nelson

Visiting Nelson

The centrepiece of the region is the Glenelg River, Victoria’s largest estuarine river. The township of Nelson rests where this mighty river meets the sea, close to the South Australian border and surrounded by the thickly forested Lower Glenelg National Park and superb ocean beach. Nelson offers the perfect opportunity for scenic drives, nature walks, swimming, boating, canoeing, fishing and camping.
