Come and visit Eco certified Murray Valley National Park and Murray Valley Regional Park, established to protect the majestic river red gum forests of the Riverina’s Ramsar-listed wetland.

Part of the largest continuous red gum forest in the world, this region hosts a unique ecosystem with over 60 threatened native animal species and 40 threatened plant species. It is also an important place for Aboriginal people.

There are lots of things to do; camp out overnight by the river, go walking along the tranquil Gulpa Creek trail, fish for your dinner in the mighty Murray, paddle along the river in a canoe or kayak. If you're interested in birds, be sure to check out Reedbeds Bird Hide and look out for the yellow rosella as you ride the park's trails.
