Escape for the day at Oolambeyan National Park. Just 85km from Hay, in the spectacular Riverina district, its grasslands and woodlands provide a great spot for picnicking, walking and birdwatching.

Find a shady spot for a picnic in the homestead’s surviving orchard. There’s an oval with a cricket pitch nearby and many historic buildings to see – great if you’ve got the kids with you. Galahs can often be seen in the area, as can kangaroos, which often graze on the oval.

For the adventurous, management trails from the homestead can be explored by cycling and hiking.
