As the day breaks, grey kangaroos bound through the morning mist as you cast a line out into the river to catch a fish for breakfast. Staying at Murrumbidgee Valley National Park is the ultimate bush camping experience. Created in 2010, this national park protects part of what is now the largest continuous tract of river red gum forest in the world. There’s plenty of opportunity for fishing, swimming, picnicking, birdwatching and taking a GPS to ‘go bush’.
Visit Koala reserve near Narrandera for a picnic, then stroll through the river red gums spotting as many koalas as you can.
Choose from cycling and hiking routes, or discover the beauty of Murrumbidgee River by canoe; for the intrepid explorer, Narrandera to Yanco weir is a four-hour paddle.
With few facilities and infrastructure, Murrumbidgee Valley National Park allows you freedom to find your own camping spot – as secluded or sociable as you like – the perfect base from which to explore the park.
