Read more about Murray Valley Regional Park

Murray Valley Regional Park is made up of many areas dotted along the Edward and Murray rivers, from Balranald all the way to Howlong. Dogs on leashes are welcome in the regional park.

Towering gums crowd its banks and provide the perfect backdrop for a kayaking or canoeing adventure. Murray Valley Regional Park and nearby Murray Valley National Park were established to protect the majestic river red gum forests of the Riverina’s Ramsar-listed wetland.

Experience all the camping on offer. You'll find sandy inland beaches at Barooga, Deniliquin and Mulwala and perfect fishing spots along the high banks of Mathoura and Moama. Edward River is a beautiful spot to enjoy a picnic lunch, swim or paddle if you have a canoe with you. Adventure seekers can get their thrills on the Five Mile mountain bike trail in Moama. If you’re in Denilliquin, try the Beach to Beach walk which links Willoughbys Beach to McLean Beach.

Visit the eastern pockets of the regional park that follow the Murray River from Barooga to Howlong. Stop off at Ski Beach for a barbecue or find your own slice of paradise at one of the campgrounds in Mulwala, Collendina or Quat Quatta East. 

Staying longer in the Murray-Riverina? The scenic Gulpa Island Drive takes you through parts of Murray Valley Regional Park and Murray Valley National Park. Please remember dogs aren’t allowed in the national park.
