Nulla Nulla Swamp & Redlands Hill Trail

Head out northwest of Corowa on this 19km trial, travelling past the remnants of the Corowa Deep Lead Gold Mine (1861), Yuruga homestead and the concrete gun replacement site which was established to defend Corowa Aerodrome during World War 2.

Nulla Nulla Swamp provides a natural drainage area to Redlands Hill. Tom Roberts was so inspired by the shearing shed activities on the property opposite the Redlands Hill Reserve that he painted his famous “Shearing of the Rams” in 1890. The shearing shed in the painting was later destroyed by fire. Note that there are some gravel tracks on this ride.
