National parks & reserves

The Murray

  • Mungo National Park, The Murray, Victoria, Australia

Discover the mighty Murray River and its eclectic landscapes in the region's national parks and reserves, from wetlands at Barmah National Park to the sandy outback of Mungo National Park.

Shifting sands
Reconnect with nature and soak up the region's year-round sunshine on a day trip or set up camp and spend the night. Witness the sculpted dunes of Mungo National Park and Perry Sandhills. Check out the Pink Lakes at Murray-Sunset National Park and look out for kangaroos and native birdlife at Hattah-Kulkyne National Park.

Forest giants
See the world's largest stand of river red gums at Barmah National Park near Echuca-Moama, where some trees have been around for over 500 years. Marvel at Pine Mountain, one of Australia's largest rock monoliths at the Burrowa-Pine National Park, near Albury-Wodonga.

Local Dreaming
Learn about the region's rich heritage, join a tour guided by an Aboriginal expert, and gain valuable new insight into the culture of the local Indigenous people. Keep an eye out for Aboriginal artefacts, middens and sacred sites that can be found in national parks all across the Murray region.
