Overview

Wildlife & zoos

The Murray region is alive with hundreds of species of native flora and fauna, and autumn, winter and spring are the best times to see the abundance of wildlife animate the natural landscape. See kangaroos, emus and lizards in their natural habitat. Go birdwatching in the bush and try to spot everything from wedge-tailed eagles, major mitchell cockatoos and parrots to wrens, pelicans and Mallee fowls.

Floodplains and sunsets

Soak up the spectacular Mallee sunsets and floodplain birdlife at Hattah-Kulkyne National Park near Mildura or stroll along the riverside boardwalk at Red Cliffs Scenic Reserve to see the whistling kites, peregrine falcons or pelicans. Take a 4WD trip through beautiful river red gum forests and keep an eye out for wildlife at Kings Billabong and the Pink Lakes in the Murray Sunset National Park.

Birdwatching in Echuca

Trek through the lagoons and billabongs of Barmah State Park and Forest east of Echuca, where you'll find large native bird rookeries. Nearby Ulupna Island is home of koalas and kangaroos, which can be easily seen in their natural setting. The towering eucalypts lining the riverbanks and wetlands around Gunbower Island provide the perfect habitat for countless species of birds and protected populations of kangaroos, emus, goannas, possums and snakes.

Wonga Wetlands: a bushwalker's haven

Bring your binoculars, set off on a bush walk and spot over 150 different bird species that live among the trails at Wonga Wetlands, about 7 kilometres west of Albury-Wodonga. The wetlands cover about 80 hectares on the Murray River floodplain, making it the perfect home for a whole host of winged wildlife.
