Boasting stunning coastal scenery, Marlo is a popular fishing destination. Drop a line in the river, lakes or beach for numerous species of good eating fish. Chat to the locals for clues of what’s biting where. Experience the coastal beauty of the area along the Snowy River Estuary Walk, exploring the lower reaches of the Snowy River estuary and the ocean beach opposite Frenches Narrows. Take in breathtaking views of the estuary, river mouth and the sweep of coastline to Point Ricardo in the east and watch the local birdlife and other inhabitants of the backwaters and wetlands from numerous vantage points along the boardwalk. SUMMER WITH THE FAMILY Marlo’s largest caravan park, Marlo Ocean View Caravan and Camping Park, is one of the best spots to access stunning scenery, waterways and beautiful clean beaches. With a vast expanse of 13 acres of lush grassed area, the park is just a short stroll from the beautiful Marlo Beach situated over the road, and is nestled in an area brimming with natural beauty. The park boasts 250 sites, cabins with en suites, on-site premium vans, on-site vans with en suites, and powered and unpowered camping sites. The two undercover barbecue areas are ideal for a big cook-up with family and friends and the kiosk and coffee shop within the park let you sit back and relax, while someone else does the work. You can even bring your best mate along on your trip, as pets are welcome in the park, outside of the accommodation facilities. There is a large playing oval, great for an impromptu game of cricket or to give the dog a good run around. ANGLER’S GETAWAY Located in the heart of town, the Marlo Caravan Park and Motel is close by to all that the seaside town has to offer. Managers, Georgie and Mark, took on the park a number of years ago, attracted to the area for its excellent fishing, something that Georgie is pretty keen on and does whenever she gets the chance. Georgie had travelled from the other side of Melbourne to Marlo for a number of years on fishing trips with a friend, continually drawn to the little town’s atmosphere and angling opportunities. Now she and Mark enjoy managing the park that offers a range of accommodation options. Self contained two and three bedroom motel units and deluxe cabins are available with full kitchen facilities, colour television with DVD player and linen supplied. Pets are welcome, but Georgie and Mark ask that they not enter the accommodation facilities. They love listening to the tales of others (especially if they’re fishing related). Stroll along the Snowy River Estuary Walk and take in spectacular views.
