About the region

Murrumbidgee Discovery Track

The 27 kilometre Murrumbidgee Discovery Track makes it possible to walk the length of the river between Point Hut Crossing in the south, pass through Pine Island and Kambah Pool and finish up at Casuarina Sands to the north.

Whether you explore just a small section of the track or walk its entire length, you’ll discover many animals plus large areas of natural riverine and gorge vegetation, including several rare plant species.

Magnificent rock formations, gorges and cascading waters welcome everyone from casual swimmers to hardened trekkers.

No bins are provided – please take your rubbish home with you.
