The Murray region is brimming with jawdropping landscapes –from lush riverbeds fringed by red gum forests to the stunning red dirt formations of the close-by deserts. Step onto Yorta Yorta country and explore the world's largest red river gum forest at Barmah National Park. If you're lucky you'll spot some of the area's distinct wildlife like goannas and eastern grey kangaroos and get to roam through ancient flood plains. You can even pitch a tent on the river itself in the stunning Ulupna Island beach camping area. Head down the river a bit and find Red Cliffs, a cute town known for its horticultural history and namesake 70 metre cliffs that plunge into the Murray and are a striking colour any time of the day. Take a bit of a longer trek into NSW and be rewarded by the splendour of the Mungo National Park. A once-in-a-lifetime experience, this magical place is significant to Ngyiampaa, Mutthi Mutthi and Southern Paakantyi people.
