Walking & hiking

The Murray

  • Barmah State Park, The Murray, Victoria, Australia

The Murray region's year-round mild weather makes for great walking and hiking. So take your time and uncover the secrets of the Murray on foot. Follow the many tracks crisscrossing the region and connect with the eclectic landscapes that are alive with legendary river stories. Keep an eye out for native birds, kangaroos and other shy wildlife on your travels.

River red gums and ancient legends
Bask in the Murray's Mediterranean climate, see local wildlife and get insights into the Aboriginal heritage of the world's largest river red gum forest. See how the region's iconic waterways and wetlands feed the Barmah and Hattah-Kulkyne national parks, and explore the pink lakes, sand dunes and billabongs.

Head further east to the popular Nyah-Vinifera Park to wander through the red gums. Walk along the riverbank and discover small middens where Aboriginal people once camped and fished.
