Towering red gums, expansive outback plains, starry nights and plenty of fun on the water, welcome to Deniliquin (aka Deni).
Start with a hearty breakfast at the Deniliquin Bakery, best known for its award-winning meat pies and creative sourdough bread.
Fuelled with breaky, take your wheels over to The Depot where a nostalgic collection of vehicles and memorabilia detail tales of life on the road. Next door Cruzin’ Diner is a great spot for a feed too.
Deniliquin is best known as an aquatic playground so make your next stop McLean Beach, a sandy freshwater beach that eases into the Edward River and is the perfect spot to launch a vessel.
If you prefer to stay dry, wander the historic Waring Gardens, which were established in 1888 when the park was used to test the suitability of plants for the local climate and soil.
Alternatively, chase an adrenaline rush on the local Mountain Bike Trails where you can hire a free bike at the Visitor Centre, then hit the fast and flowy cross-country routes that follow kangaroo tracks through Murray Valley Regional Park.
For lunch or dinner The Crossing Cafe is a must, to enjoy a relaxed atmosphere while choosing from a menu of thoughtful, delicious dishes that hero local producers.
Finally choose to rest your head at the BIG4 Deni, or drive the 95-kilometres to your next port of call, Barooga.
