Murray Valley National Park
The Murray Valley National Park is a great place to relax amongst a serene ambience of towering river red gums and quiet wetlands. Walk or ride the Gulpa Creek track, explore the area in your canoe or kayak or head to Reed Beds bird hide for a spot of birdwatching.
Known as the ute capital of the world, Deniliquin is situated in Country NSW on a tributary of the Murray River, 750 km south-west of Sydney. The town holds The Guinness Book of Records world title for the most utes mustered in one place and continues to break its record each year during the annual Ute Muster Play on the Plains Festival. Held in October, thisis a fun-packed local event not to be missed.
Deniliquin is at the centre of Riverina sheep-station country and on the fringe of one of the world's largest red gum forests, where birds and wildlife abound in the Barmah Wetlands. A network of forest trails offers bushwalking, camping, biking and birdwatching.
The Deniliquin area is rich in history and heritage, and there are several landmarks to see. You'll also find wineries and restaurants in the region that demonstrate why it's such a popular food and wine destination. If you prefer simpler, earthy snacking, try the Bush Tucker Trail in Jerilderie.
There are a variety of accommodation options to choose from in town.
