For a beautiful lakeside walk that combines impressive scenic views and superb birdwatching, head for Yanga Lake walking track. This short track traces part of the eastern shoreline to link some of the most scenic features of Yanga National Park, part of Murrumbidgee Valley National Park. Near Yanga Homestead, it’s an ideal introduction to the tranquil beauty of the wetlands for families, school groups and nature lovers.

The steep and rough track descends from Yanga Lake viewing deck through majestic river red gums and river coobas to the very shores of the immense lake. Enjoy a leisurely picnic as you soak in the natural beauty and serenity.

Spring and Autumn are excellent times to visit as bird activity is at its peak. However, there’s birdlife all year round including pelicans, cormorants and white-bellied sea eagles. For a more immersive birdwatching experience stop by Yanga Lake Red Gum bird hide.
