Koondrook is an Aboriginal word meaning "meeting of the waters" as this is where the Gunbower Creek meets the Murray River in Victoria about 300 kilometres from Melbourne. Koondrook is across the Murray River from Barham (New South Wales) - drive over the old lift bridge.

The wide streets make it easy for parking with the caravan and there are a a variety of historical features in town - the old tram in the middle of the main street and the Arbuthnot sawmills which have been operating since 1889. They provide red gum timber for furniture, flooring and bench tops. Koondrook Barham Red gum Statue River Walk showcases some of the beautiful sculptures created out of the timber - this is a work in progress with new features added each year. 

Koondrook was famous for building paddle steamers in the 1800's and is about an hour from Echuca and Swan Hill. Tourism is important to this small town - fishing, canoeing, cruising on the river or swamplands, bush walking, bird watching, golf, bowls and tennis. Koondrook Caravan Park and Murray Waters Motor Inn & Apartments are located within walking distance to town. 

There are clean, new public toilets on the corner of Tramway Place and Punt road - across from the park with parking out front for caravans.
