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.
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.
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.
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.

Explore the red sandhills and ancient Aboriginal heritage of Perry Sandhills national park. See replicas of the area's mega fauna in a nearby museum.
