This 1.3km circuit, which combines Ringbark and River tracks, is popular with locals keen to stretch their legs and walk their dogs. The wide array of birds also makes this area a drawcard for birdwatchers.

Breathe in the fresh air as you follow the natural forest paths. Keep an eye out for kangaroos and the green flash of superb parrots in the trees. Spring is the best time to see the rich birdlife, including yellow and eastern rosellas, red-rumped parrots, galahs and sulphur crested cockatoos.

Glimpse the Edward River, and follow the short detour to the river’s edge where you can dip your feet in the water or cast a fishing line. Pack lunch and enjoy river views from the picnic tables along Ringbark track.

This small patch of bushland is also home to Aboriginal cultural heritage sites. Bush foods important for the local community grow among the gum and kurrajong trees.

Stay at nearby Willoughbys Beach campground and explore more of the park and Edward River by canoe or kayak or along scenic Gulpa Island drive. Hire or BYO bike and hit the Deniliquin mountain bike trails.
