Moira Drive is a 20km, grade 2 one way hike, located in the Murray Valley National Park, New South Wales. The hike should take approximately 1.5hrs to complete.
This leisurely and scenic drive through the river red gum forest takes in Cadell Tilt, Murray River , Poverty Point and King’s Log Landing. Hop out of the car to stretch your legs at Poverty Point or is this Poverty Point Road; you can take an easy walk along the Moira walkway to the water bird observatory. Look out for eastern great egrets, common greenshanks and red necked stints, just some of the migratory birds you’ll see in the wetlands.
There’s a barbecue site here too so it’s a perfect spot for a picnic or barbecue lunch; you could ask for a more picturesque location.
