Why have I never explored this part of the country in Australia before? Why did I think the beach was all that Australia was about and anywhere else was boring?

The River Red Gum National Park is a huge area comprising several state parks, reserves, and regional parks in the Riverina area of South West New South Wales.

Things to Do in River Red Gum Park

The River Red Gum Park is a huge area of forest and has so many amazing things to do. Here are some of our top suggestions for activities to do in the park…

Bush Camping in the River Red Gum National Park

Open grassy fields, a crackling fire fed by the tonnes of firewood laying on the forest floor, and a river to bathe in. What more do you need to set up camp in?

Kayaking along the Murrumbidgee River

I was mesmerized by the beauty and peacefulness of the 14km kayaking trip. The magnificent river moved quickly so we could often sit back and float lazily down.

Go Mountain Bike Riding

Despite the physical exertion, the mountain bike riding adventure through the forest was a thrilling way to experience the National Park.

For any traveller wanting to experience true Australia country this is it.

Kangaroos bounding freely around you, wild koalas peering at you from around the branches of their home, warm and friendly locals, and gum trees are aplenty.
