Explore the Murray-Darling Basin in the historically rich Paroo-Darling National Park.
Situated approximately 30km from White Cliffs, Paroo-Darling National Park is set within the country of the Paakantji Aboriginal people. The Paakantji and Ngiyampaa people have traditionally called this area home, and the park provides significant sites that reveal a great deal about their way of life over the last 10,000 years.
The outstanding feature of the park is the Paroo River wetland system; one of the most important wetlands in New South Wales and the only unregulated river in the entire Murray-Darling catchment.
The northern end of Peery Lake is particularly striking, as it provides an insight into the scale and diversity of natural habitats in the area. Paddle or walk around the lake and marvel at the birdlife – 60,000 birds were recorded in the last survey.
There are plenty of informal places for a picnic, and scenic camping on the Darling River is available at the Coach and Horses campground, 40km north of Wilcannia. Be sure to bring your fishing rod to this popular fishing spot.
