This 1.7km return walk starts at Five Mile picnic area and boat ramp, and weaves along the beautiful Murray River to Dungula lookout. Experience the sights, sounds and dappled light of the forest as you meander through the river red gums and silver wattles.

Dungula lookout is the perfect spot to take a break and enjoy stunning water views. Here, you can also find signage with information about the cultural importance of the river to the local Yorta Yorta Aboriginal people.

Retrace your steps and follow the winding river back to the carpark. 

Riverside walk is a great place to escape the summer heat. Visit in the early morning or at sunset for the best chance to spot wildlife. Crimson rosellas in this area are actually yellow. These yellow rosellas are unique to the red gum forests of the Murray, Murrumbidgee and neighbouring rivers. You may also spot brown treecreepers, grey fantails, white-plumed honeyeaters and swamp wallabies.

If you feel like a longer walk, continue for another 1km on the Five Mile mountain bike trail but lookout for cyclists along the way.
