Explore Lyrup Flats, part of the Murray River National Park. This encompasses 2,000 hectares along the floodplain on the northern side of the Murray River opposite the township of Lyrup.
The park is easily reached by turning off the Sturt Highway just past Berri and continuing down to the river and park entrance.
The area provides wonderful opportunities to birdwatch, fish, camp, moor a boat or walk along the floodplain. Dogs on a leash are allowed in Lyrup Flats National Park.
The Lyrup village settlement was established in 1894. Lyrup was one of the first of 13 village settlements established during 1894 to provide relief for the vast number of unemployed in Adelaide and is the only surviving settlement.
