Murrumbidgee Valley National Park
National Parks & Wildlife Office, Yambil Street, Griffith NSW 2680
Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, situated along the Murrumbidgee River and near Narrandera, Hay and Balranald, is a great place for fishing, camping, kayaking, cycling, hiking and birdwatching.
As the day breaks, grey kangaroos bound through the morning mist as you cast a line out into the river to catch a fish for breakfast. Staying at Murrumbidgee Valley National Park is the ultimate bush camping experience. Created in 2010, this national park protects part of what is now the largest continuous tract of river red gum forest in the world. There’s plenty of opportunity for fishing, swimming, picnicking, birdwatching and taking a GPS to ‘go bush’.
Visit Koala reserve near Narrandera for a picnic, then stroll through the river red gums spotting as many koalas as you can.
For those near Leeton, Turkey Flat picnic area and bird hide is a must-see. Follow it up with a walk or bike ride along Turkey Flat trail, then end the day with a swim or a paddle at Middle Beach.
Choose from cycling and hiking routes, or discover the beauty of Murrumbidgee River by canoe; for the intrepid explorer, Narrandera to Yanco weir is a four-hour paddle.
With few facilities and infrastructure, Murrumbidgee Valley National Park allows you freedom to find your own camping spot – as secluded or sociable as you like – the perfect base from which to explore the park. If you're near Hay, check out dog-friendly Wooloondool campground in Murrumbidgee Valley Regional Park.
Murrumbidgee Valley National Park extends along the Murrumbdigee River and offers picnic areas, camping, fishing, swimming and boating. Stop by Darlington Point and take in the breathtaking scenery.
