Gulpa Creek Walk: Grab a coffee and a pastry (and water, of course) in Mathoura, and stroll towards Crane’s Bridge, to start out on the flat and easy 5km Gulpa Creek walk. The red gums, birdlife and native animals (if you’re lucky and observant) are glorious. It’s also a good ride, and a popular short canoe/kayak trail. Being in the regional park, dogs are welcome too.
Sculpture in the Red Gums: At the Edward River Bridge picnic area you’ll find sculptor Geoff Hocking’s series of 4 rusted iron works, depicting the history of the river red gum forest, from Indigenous fishing to agriculture and timber cutters.
Five Mile Mountain Bike Trail: Off Pericoota Road west of Echuca Moama is this terrific 7-km circuit of purpose-built mountain bike tracks. With sections to suit everyone from beginners to experienced riders, this is a great spot to spend a day exploring the park and working up an appetite. Just as well there are picnic facilities and terrific fishing nearby.
