Rich in Aboriginal culture, Mungo National Park is well-worth a visit – home of the famous Mungo Man, Walls of China and part of the Willandra Lakes Region World Heritage Area. Spend some time exploring walking tracks and back roads on a 4WD touring adventure. If you don't want to enjoy the adventure alone, you can join a guided tour with a local Aboriginal guide. 

Pitch a tent and go kayaking along the mighty Murray River in Murray Valley National Park, or enjoy bird watching and spotting koalas in the trees at Narrandera Nature Reserve.

The clear outback skies are great for picnics or camping, and there are lots of great fishing spots along the banks of Murrumbidgee River in Yanga National Park - its red gum wetlands are home to over 150 species of birds.
