Murray Valley National Park
Take time out to visit Murray Valley National Park, admire the serene wetlands and towering river red gums. Go for a walk or ride the Gulpa Creek track, bring your canoe or kayak along for a spot of paddling 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. The annual Ute Muster Play on the Plains Festival in October is a fun-packed local event not to be missed.
The Ute Muster site is also used for the town’s other major cultural event, the Deni Blues and Roots Festival, held over the Easter Weekend in April. Thousands of music lovers descend on the town for the two-day festival which takes world class music to inland Australia. The event features an eclectic range of music from folk, funk and soul to psychedelic rock and rhythm and blues. Iconic musicians to have graced the Deni stage include Santana, John Mayer, Chris Isaak, Elvis Costello & The Imposters and the Steve Miller Band.
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 some very pretty accommodation options to choose from in town.
