Paroo-Darling National Park, Outback New South Wales
Paroo-Darling National Park has a rich history with many experiences for the visitor including kayaking, canoeing, fishing and picnicking.
At Paroo-Darling National Park, you’ll find the Paroo Overflow, the only unregulated river in the Murray-Darling Basin and an area of outstanding conservation value and natural beauty.
Spend a couple of days exploring the park, including the ephemeral Peery Lake just northwest of White Cliffs where you'll be amazed by the birdlife - 60,000 birds were recorded in a recent survey.
There are heaps of informal spots for a picnic - choose your own scenic place - and camping is available at Coach and Horse campground in the Wilga section of the park. Be sure to bring your fishing rod along to this popular fishing spot.
With its frequent floods, this area is also the traditional home to the Ngiyeempaa and Paakantyi people and since European settlement has been an important pastoral area. The area’s rich history is waiting for you to discover.
