Discover Murray River Trail and National Parks
Follow the Discover Murray River Trail starting at the source near Australia’s highest peak, Mt Kosciuszko heading west towards the world’s largest River Red Gum forests at Barmah near Echuca and towards the semi-arid landscape of Mildura, Balranald and Wentworth you’ll discover the World Heritage Willandra Lakes and Mungo National Park and Murray Sunset National Park.
You’ll also encounter a myriad of reserves, state and conservation parks and billabongs. From snow to desert to ocean, the Murray River has spectacular serenity and beauty. We’re proud just to be sharing it with you. Enjoy and please remember to protect our river environment and National Park care.
Murray River Icon Sites
Separate to the National Parks, however highly aligned, is the Living Murray initiative that focuses on improving the environment at six 'icon sites' along the Murray River. The Living Murray icon sites were chosen for their high ecological value - most are listed as internationally significant wetlands under the Ramsar Convention - also for their cultural significance to Indigenous people and the broader community.
- Barmah-Millewa Forest
- Gunbower-Koondrook-Perricoota Forest
- Hattah Lakes
- Chowilla Floodplain and Lindsay-Wallpolla Islands
- Lower Lakes, Coorong and Murray Mouth
