National parks & reserves

Discover the mighty Murray River and its eclectic landscapes in the region's national parks and reserves, from wetlands at Barmah National Park to the sandy outback of Mungo National Park.

Lakes and sandhills
Reconnect with nature and soak up the region's year-round sunshine on a day trip or set up camp and spend the night. See Mungo National Park and Perry Sandhills' sculpted dunes. Check out the Pink Lakes at Murray-Sunset National Park and look out for kangaroos and native birdlife at Hattah-Kulkyne National Park.

Reach new heights
See the world's largest stand of river red gums at Barmah National Park near Echuca-Moama, where some trees have been around for over 500 years. Marvel at Pine Mountain, one of Australia's largest rock monoliths at the Burrowa-Pine National Park, near Albury-Wodonga.

Local histories
Learn about the region's rich heritage, join a tour guided by an Aboriginal expert, and gain valuable new insight into the culture of the local Indigenous people. Keep an eye out for Aboriginal artefacts, middens and sacred sites that can be found in national parks all across the Murray region.

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