Nulla Nulla Swamp & Redlands Hill Trail

Head out northwest of Corowa on this 19km trial connecting the Murray with swamps, hills and the vast expanse of plains. You’ll travel past the remnants of the Corowa Deep Lead Gold Mine (1861), Yuruga Homestead and the concrete gun replacement site, established to defend Corowa Aerodrome during World War II.

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 depicted painting was later destroyed by fire.

Note that there are some gravel tracks on this ride.
