Just south of Deniliquin, the Edward River meanders into the spectacular Murray Valley National Park, which protects the Riverina’s Ramsar-listed wetlands. The park has three loop mountain bike tracks to explore, winding through majestic river red gum forest. Keep an eye out for eastern grey kangaroos.
