Turon river. Hill End

The Turon River offers many excellent locations for drama and TVC’s. Good locations for 4WD river crossings to promote 4WD vehicles. Good vantage points along river, particularly from the Bridle Track which runs parallel to river between Sofala and Hill End.  Good spots for camping and some spectacular high shots of river in gorges as move closer towards Hill End.  Normally good flows in river even in severe drought.
