Please note

This is a remote picnic area, please arrive well prepared.

If you’re a birdwatching nut then grab your binoculars and head to Morton Boulka picnic area. This remote and tranquil spot in Kinchega National Park links the mighty Cawndilla and Menindee lake systems, and explodes with life after the rains.

This vast water system teems with wonderful animals in both the wet and dry cycles. This area has been home to the Paakantji people for thousands of years. Look for the scars in nearby trees where canoes and carry baskets were carved from the trunks; imagine what life would have been like all those years ago.

After a picnic, take a walk and look out for brolgas and speckled ducks; you’re likely to hear the noisy chatter of the cheeky apostle birds before you see them. Shortly after rain, you’ll be treated to a colourful wildflower display.
