Mitchell River

18-20 Nov 2022

Mitchell River Super Trail is Victoria’s newest 3-Day jam-packed adventure trail running weekend nestled in the pristine campsite of Echo Bend. Probably one of the richest prize purses in Victoria with an event for EVERY level of runner/walker. This weekend will also include Australia’s unique and newest and craziest trail event L.O.S.E.R.

Hosted by Echo Bend Camping Park, complete with a trail for everyone in the family, and family friendly activities including an open air movie night, come along and enjoy atmosphere.

Live it Up – or Live it Easy

The Super Trail Mitchell River event will be based at the Echo Bend Camping Park.  We are thrilled that owners Geoff and Julie will share their hospitality with our trail runners and their families.

Nestled against the Mitchell River National Park, this unspoilt camping park has everything you need.  With large powered and unpowered sites available, bring the whole tribe, spread out and unwind in the bushland oasis. The Kiosk has all your last-minute camping needs, including coffee, cold drinks and homemade refreshments.

We’re certain this weekend will grow to be one of the premier (& laid back) weekends in the Victoria Trail run scene. Come join us!
