Yanga National Park, close to Balranald, features lots of great fishing spots along the Murrumbidgee River. Bring your tent or caravan to stay at the free campgrounds.
Yanga National Park may be one of the state’s newest parks, but the land itself boasts a long and significant history. From Aboriginal families to early explorers, shearers to rabbit trappers, fishermen to campers – people have been visiting the area for millennia. Now it’s your turn.
Also known as Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, Yanga contains fascinating chapters of Australian history. Camp by the banks of the Murrumbidgee like Burke and Wills once did; see over 150 species of birds in the park’s trees, skies and ecologically-important wetlands; acquaint yourself with bygone days at the old homestead, woolshed and countless Aboriginal sites, and enjoy a spot of fishing by the river.
No visit to Yanga National Park is complete without stopping by its Park Office. Housed in 1950s buildings, the office offers a wealth of information about the area. The park’s rangers are happy to answer your questions and give you expert advice on camping or bushwalking in the area.
