For fun and adventure, Deniliquin is a superb destination in southwest NSW and home to the world-famous Deni Ute Muster. Enjoy waterskiing and wakeboarding on the beautiful Edward River, a tributary of the Murray River. You’ll relish fishing, bushwalking, kayaking, cycling and golf too.

At the junction of the Cobb and Riverina highways, this charming town known locally as Deni is 50 minutes’ drive north of Echuca Moama. From Melbourne it is 3h 30min and a road trip from Sydney is best split into two or more days. The nearest major airport is Albury, a little over two hours away.

The iconic two-day Deni Ute Muster is in the Guinness World Records for the most utility vehicles gathered in one place. The annual festival is on the October long weekend and is one of Australia’s premier rural events, with live music, a ute competition, rodeo and plenty of things to do for kids.

Check out the events calendar for other festivities, such as the Deniliquin Fishing Classic on the Edward River. You can hire a kayak in Deniliquin and explore the river. For a delightful stroll, take the Beach to Beach Riverside Walk past towering red gums and visit the Peppin Heritage Centre.

Another memorable way to experience the river is to hire a houseboat. You can rent bicycles too and pedal along the riverbank and stop at the fascinating Deniliquin and District Historical Society Museum, a former colonial police inspector’s home built in the 1880s and restored in the 1980s.

You’ll find plenty of places to stay, from riverside camping and caravanning to houseboats, cottages and motels. Just south of Deniliquin the Edward River meanders in the spectacular Murray Valley National Park, where you’ll find majestic river red gums in the Riverina’s Ramsar-listed wetlands.
