At Paroo-Darling National Park, you’ll find the Paroo Overflow, the only unregulated river in the Murray-Darling Basin and an area of outstanding conservation value and natural beauty.

Spend a couple of days exploring the park - paddle or walk around Peery Lake, you'll be amazed by the birdlife - 60,000 birds were recorded in a recent survey. There are heaps of informal spots for a picnic - choose your own scenic place - and camping is available at Coach and Horse campground in the Wilga section of the park. Be sure to bring your fishing rod along to this popular fishing spot. 

With its frequent floods, this area is also the traditional home to the Ngiyeempaa and Paakantyi people and since European settlement has been an important pastoral area. The area’s rich history is waiting for you to discover.

Paroo Darling National Park joint management program

To acknowledge the commitment NSW National Parks has in working with the Paroo-Darling National Park Elders Council, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed in November 2010. This agreement ensures that Aboriginal people have meaningful involvement in the management of the park, which features Aboriginal sites and places of cultural value.
