A visit to the Sun Country on the Murray region is not complete without exploring the iconic Barmah National Park.

The Barmah Forest is a heritage listed region and home to the largest stand of river red gums in the world. The narrowest section or ‘choke’ of the Murray River is located in the park, bounded on either side by the Moira and Barmah Lakes.

There are a number of ways to explore the Barmah National Park – go for a hike, hire a canoe or glimpse hidden wildlife on a river cruise. Before you travel to the National Park, visit the Barmah Forest Heritage & Education Centre in Nathalia and find out about the region’s fascinating history. From pre-history to the present day, learn of the struggles and be amazed at the achievements of our forefathers.

An early morning visit to Ulupna Island in the east will not disappoint, with sightings of kangaroos and koalas virtually guaranteed.

Close to town there are a number of nature walks, wetlands and bird watching havens. Chinaman’s Island in Yarrawonga is an easy walking track along wetlands and Lake Mulwala.

A well-formed trail at Quinn Island in Cobram winds its ways through River Red Gum and Silver Wattle forest, including access to a great bird hide that overlooks a billabong.

Numurkah’s Kinnaird’s Wetland offers a range of trails suitable for walking and cycling, boardwalks, bird hides and picnic areas to give you the opportunity to enjoy the wonderful diversity of wetland and woodland. All provide habitat for a variety of plants, wildlife and birds.
