Camping opportunities don’t come any more spectacular than at Goulburn River National Park. The park stretches along 90km of the river, and its wide, sandy banks and forest landscape offer easy walking and good swimming – particularly in summer – as well as some amazing birdwatching. You won’t need your binoculars to spot the emus, but they’ll be handy for taking a closer look at species like the turquoise parrot. When you’re not birdwatching, keep an eye out for eastern grey kangaroos, red-necked wallabies and wombats, which are also common in this area.

It’s an area of significant Aboriginal heritage, too. With more than 300 known sites, located mostly along the river, the area is very important to the local Aboriginal people. If you’re looking for a picturesque place to pitch a tent, get away from it all at either of two campgrounds, both situated on the banks of Goulburn River and surrounded by shady trees.
