The Murray and Murrumbidgee river red gums national parks open up a wealth of opportunities to get out into the great outdoors. As well as taking part in a range of recreational and social activities, visitors to these parks also support regional economies.

Visitors to this region are welcome to camp, picnic and barbecue in all national and regional parks. There are various designated camping spots in bushland areas and alongside the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers.

Significant new infrastructure has been put in place, including a world class mountain biking facility to make visiting these parks even more enjoyable.

The NPWS Nature Tourism Action Plan (NSWRiverRedGumNatureTourism.pdf, 1.65MB) is guiding the revitalisation and establishment of visitor experiences and recreational access in the River Red Gum reserves.

All you need to know about visiting the river red gum parks is available on the NPWS visitor website.
