Gunbower Island, between Torrumbarry and Koondrook, is bounded by the Murray River and Gunbower Creek. The island consists of the Gunbower National Park and Gunbower State Forest.
This 26,400 ha flood plain is the largest inland island in Australia. About 80 percent of the area contains magnificent red gum and black box forests and is home for a large range of birds, native mammals, reptiles and amphibians. After a hot summer hiding in the shadows, autumn is a perfect time to see animals and birdlife in all their glory.
Gunbower National Park and Gunbower State Forest are ideal destinations for nature lovers and campers. Popular activities include fishing, bushwalking, camping, canoeing or simply driving through the track network sightseeing. Cooler autumn days are also tailor-made for mountain biking along the area’s bush roads and tracks.
