Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The Campaspe River walk is an absolute hidden gem. It is so quiet and serene - often you can walk the track without even crossing paths with other people. The walking track itself is well maintained and the path winds around the river, giving some spectacular views of the river.

The headwaters of the Campaspe River rise on the northern slopes of the Great Dividing Range and descend to flow north into the Murray River, Australia's longest river, near Echuca. This area of the state continues to give you opportunities to enjoy this meandering river as it winds through the landscape. I have found river walks in a handful of towns in the area and I have even viewed properties with this river running through them. 

As the river is quite long, indigenous peoples from various cultural groups lived near the river course. In the indigenous Yorta Yorta language, the name for the river is Yalka or Yalooka, meaning "dry leaf." In the Daungwurrung language the name for the river is Boregam. While in the Daungwurrung and Ngurai-illamwurrung language, the river is named Yerrin.

The European name was given to it by Major Mitchell in 1836 for Campaspe, a mistress of Alexander the Great. The path winds along the edge of the water ... you can smell the Australian bush as you walk... it's really serene.

This walk is one that provides choice. You can stay on the level part for easy walking or go on the alternative route that’s undulating. We did a mixture of both. Most enjoyable. The dog thought so too.
