About Deniliquin Area

Set on the Edward River, a branch of the Murray, Deniliquin is bordered by a series of lagoons, parkland and the Barmah-Millewa State Forest which has Australia's largest natural stand of river red gums and is home to many threatened plant and animal species.

The twin towns of Echuca and Moama are home to Australia's largest riverboat fleet. You can take a cruise on a paddleboat from Echuca-Moama or Swan Hill. Deniliquin hosts the annual Ute Muster, which attracts keen utility (ute) drivers and€“ it now holds the Guinness world record for the most utes ever mustered in one place. Check out the iconic Ute on a Pole near the National Bridge.

There are plenty of things to see and do in the area, including waterskiing, canoeing or line fishing in and around the Edward River. Take the Long Paddock River Walk, beginning at the Peppin Heritage Centre and finishing at the nearby Island Sanctuary. The sanctuary is home to wildlife such as kangaroos, possums and flying foxes.

This part of Country NSW has amazing food and wine and a good choice of accommodation options.
