Yanga National Park may be one of the state's newest parks, but this land boasts a long and significant history and Aboriginal families have lived here for a millennia.
From the early explorers, to shearers and rabbit trappers, fishermen and campers – people have flocked to this area for all sorts of reasons. Now it's your turn to camp by the banks of the Murrumbidgee like Burke and Wills once did.
Unbeatable for bird watching, you'll see as many as 150 species of birds in the park’s trees, skies and ecologically-important wetlands. Be sure to check out Yanga Lake Red Gum bird hide too. Acquaint yourself with bygone days at the old Yanga homestead and woolshed or enjoy a spot of fishing by the river. You might even take a guided tour and visit significant Aboriginal cultural sites.
Drop in to the park office in Balranald to pick up information and learn about self-guided tours. Park staff are always happy to answer your questions and offer expert advice on camping or bushwalking in the area. If the park office is unattended you can also find plenty of visitor information at Balranald Discovery Centre. The Cook’s Cottage exhibition is open daily and you can wander around the grounds of the homestead.
