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. 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.

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. There’s plenty of opportunities for fishing, swimming, picnicking, birdwatching and taking a GPS to ‘go bush’.

Keep the whole family entertained, and take a guided kayaking, hiking or biking tour around this outstanding national park.
