About Us

Merool is a self contained Private Holiday Park situated on 63 acres of freehold land with 2 kilometres of absolute Murray River frontage! Merool is family owned and strives to provide guests with an experience of the Murray River they will remember for ever.

Merool was established in 1983 and has remained in the Whiston Family to date. The land that is now occupied by the holiday park was once a horse stud and orchid. This land that boasts 2km of Murray River frontage is home to some of Australia's native flora and fauna and allows guests to get up close and experience what the Murray River and region has to offer.

The Murray River (or River Murray is Australia's longest river, at 2,508 kilometres (1,558 mi) in length. The Murray rises in the Australian Alps, draining the western side of Australia's highest mountains, and then meanders across Australia's inland plains, forming the border between the states of New South Wales and Victoria as it flows to the northwest. It then turns south for its final 500 kilometres (310 mi) into South Australia, reaching the ocean at Lake Alexandrina.

The twin towns of Echuca Moama are an easy two and a half hour's drive from Melbourne. You're invited to explore the historic Port of Echuca and Wharf which is recognised as one of Australia's finest heritage icons and is home to the largest Paddlsteamer fleet in the world.
