Featuring the mesmerising Menindee lake system with its wonderful array of birdlife and haunting river red gums rising from the water, Kinchega National Park offers visitors a unique experience of the Australian outback.

With its ever-changing colours – the green lake bed as the water retreats and beautiful reflections in the flood – and rich pastoral and Aboriginal history, a visit to Kinchega will restore your sense of wonder.

Take your caravan to Emu Lake campground, pitch your tent on the banks of the Darling River or stay in the Kinchega Shearers’ Quarters. Don’t miss visiting the historic Kinchega Woolshed and Old Kinchega Homestead for a taste of the area’s pastoral heritage or enjoy a billy tea with the Barkindtji Aboriginal Elders on a Discovery tour to find out about the park’s Aboriginal history.
