Many Big Rocks picnic area (Karnu Yalpa) is a tranquil stop along the Darling River driving route. Enjoy a picnic lunch by a bend in the river, under the coolibah trees and river red gums. Spend some time fishing from the riverbank or natural rock weir to see if the yellow belly or cod are biting.
Stretch your legs with a walk along the water’s edge to catch a glimpse of waterbirds like cormorants and spoonbills. Chances are you’ll also spot emus, kangaroos bouncing around, or a wedge-tailed eagle soaring above.
After your break, you’ll be ready to continue exploring Toorale National Park. Visit Toorale Homestead to see the outback’s pastoral history, or learn about the Kurnu-Baakandji People and their strong connection to these lands. At Mount Talowla lookout you’ll be greeted with vast outback views of the floodplains, and seasonal wildflowers.
