Yanga National Park
Outback NSW National Parks
One of NSW’s newer National Parks, Yanga is conveniently located just north of Balranald and makes an easy diversion on the east-west route along the Sturt Highway. Its close proximity to Balranald also means it is only an hour or so from Mungo National Park and both parks can easily be visited in a day.
With great access to the Murrumbidgee River, and with some great free camping sites, it is a great place for a fishing getaway.
Yanga NP is situated on land with great historical and cultural significance to Indigenous Australia as well as European exporters and pastoral pioneers.
Yanga National Park is also known as the Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, and is rich with chapters of Australian history including Burke and Wills.
For the ornithological types, Yanga’s ecologically important wetlands are home to over 150 species of birds.
The old homestead and woolshed provide a glimpse back to a bygone era while the Aboriginal sites, highlight the richness of indigenous history and live culture.
