Attracting over 150 species of birds, Yanga Lake Red Gum bird hide offers some of the most spectacular birdwatching in NSW. Accessed along Yanga Lake walking track, it’s a great destination for families and nature-lovers alike. Located near Balranald, Yanga National Park, which is part of Murrumbidgee Valley National Park, is the perfect spot to have a picnic, unwind and get away from it all.
Nestled amongst the river red gums and old man saltbush, the hide is a great spot to watch the pelicans and black swans as they forage for food and bring up their young in these majestic waterways. Spring and autumn are great times for birdwatching as the lakes fill with birds such as white-bellied sea eagles and great crested grebes.
Don’t miss the historic charm of nearby Yanga Homestead and if you’re tempted to linger, why not spend a night or two at Mamanga campground.
