Rocky Crossing is a picturesque spot on the Campaspe River, where the water rushes through a shallow, rocky section creating swirling rapids and a few seasonal rockpools. 

Located just 27 minutes from Bendigo, this is a great local spot for a splash during summer!

A day visit parking area sits to the left of Rocky Crossing Road.

Swimming at Rocky Crossing

Rocky Crossing is shallow during summer and great for children to splash around among the rocks. 

Please note that the water in this section is fast moving and the rocky river bed makes it easy to loose footing and slip over. 

Supervise small children very closely. 

Over to the right of the entrance into the reserve, the water is deeper and is accessed by a very steep bank - this area is a great spot for kayaks and capable swimmers.
