Experience a world of colour in the Riverina region of NSW.
Cocoparra National Park is ideal for bushwalking, biking and birdwatching, and it's only a half-hour drive from Griffith in the Riverina.
Here, the huge sky of the outback is paired with the distinctive Cocoparra Range. This dramatic and rugged place is a haven for bushwalkers, birdwatchers and nature-lovers, with a landscape that’s vividly alive and always changing.
In a variety of habitats you can explore rugged ranges along with deep narrow valleys, folded and eroded rock faces. Spectacular scenery is everywhere with dramatic overviews of the plains and craggy landscapes, so bring your camera and binoculars. You’ll find woodlands and forests occupied by white cypress pine, Mallee gum, kurrajong, yellow box and many more during bushwalks.
Visit after rain to see the waterfalls and creeks in full flow and if you’re a budding botanist you must come in spring to see the wonderful variety of wildflowers; orchids, wattles and tea tree bringing extra vibrancy to the land. Other seasonal delights include the nesting season of the majestic peregrine falcons and the sight of rainbow bee-eaters building their homes in the ground – you’ll know them by their amazing spectrum of colour.
It’s an incredibly peaceful place to spend time in, so stay for a bush camp to really appreciate all the park has to offer.
