Murray River National Park
Come and explore the Murray River National Park. The park provides ample opportunity for a variety of recreational activities such as walking, bike riding, canoeing, bird watching and bush camping. Designated camping areas, with toilets (in selected areas) and parking facilities as well as walking trails and a self-guided drive trail are established over several areas in the park. This park enables the conservation of more than 14,879 hectares and includes a vast network of Murray River wetlands and floodplains that provide unique natural experiences.
Murray River National Park is divided into six separate areas: Katarapko, Lyrup Flats, Kingston-on-Murray, Paringa Paddock, Gurra Gurra and Bulyong Island. As these areas are separated by towns, visitors will need to ensure they familiarise themselves with maps of the region.
