National parks & reserves

Behold the possibilities: the Murray region's national parks present a diverse set of sights, activities and environments in an impressive and often otherworldly terrain.

Extraordinary outdoors
Take a day trip to explore the area by car or on foot or set up camp and overnight in a park. Visit Mungo National Park from Mildura or Swan Hill to see sculpted sandhills, the Pink Lakes at Murray-Sunset National Park, and kangaroos and teeming bird life at Hattah-Kulkyne National Park.

Great heights
Explore the stands of giant river red gum in the world heritage-listed Barmah State Park and Forest near Echuca-Moama, and one of Australia's largest monoliths at the Burrowa-Pine National Park, near Albury Wodonga.

Local lore
Aboriginal artefacts, middens and sacred sites can be found in National Parks all across the Murray region. Join a tour guided by an Aboriginal expert and gain a new insight into the culture and significance of the area to Indigenous people.

For information on state forests such as the Nyah-Vinifera Park and Gunbower National Park, contact a local visitor information centre.
