Explore Chow­illa Game Reserve and the great stands of the majes­tic riv­er red gum and the hardy black box pro­vid­ing habi­tat for the diverse wildlife of the park. Dis­cov­er the peace­ful water­ways of the Mur­ray Riv­er and its anabranch­es by canoe while observ­ing the array of birdlife. Due to its remote nature, Chow­illa pro­vides great oppor­tu­ni­ties for seclud­ed bush camp­ing and dis­con­nect­ing from the world ﴾with lim­it­ed phone reception﴿. 

Chow­illa is an impor­tant refuge for water­bird pop­u­la­tions. It is recog­nised as a River­land Wet­land of Inter­na­tion­al Impor­tance declared under the Ram­sar con­ven­tion, and one of the six The Liv­ing Mur­ray icon sites in the Mur­ray-Dar­ling Basin.
