Mirri Mirru Yurun is a 1km, grade 5 Return hike located in the Culgoa National Park, NSW. The hike should take approximately 45mins to complete.

Summary

Mirri Mirri Yurun, also known as River Bank walk, follows the bank of Culgoa River, threading between majestic red gums. After a wet season, spring sees the ground flourish with wildflowers as well. This is an easy walk but a good one, offering a modest introduction to the park, and a chance to enjoy a stroll without having to worry too much about equipment. Nevertheless, make sure you take a hat and plenty of water.
You might want to bring binoculars for a spot of birdwatching too, or, if you’re artistically inclined, an easel with some paints: the landscape is fascinating around here, with rich soil and a stark palette of Australian outback colours. Expect to see gidgee and coolabah trees, with emus and native birds hanging around the waterholes.
After your relaxing walk, take advantage of the tables at Culgoa River campground, settling down to finish the day off with an afternoon picnic or a barbecue.
