National Parks

The Leeton Shire is home to a number of regional and national parks, which offer myriad activities to educate, entertain and stimulate adults and children alike in the natural wonders of the region.

The parks have basic amenities, so there are fewer campers who can enjoy a genuine bush experience. The early mornings bring mobs of kangaroos and other marsupials such as dunnarts, antechinus and gliders. Over 180 bird species make this area their home, and koalas are sometimes seen in the eastern areas since they were introduced into the Narrandera Nature Reserve in the 1970s.

Visitors to the parks may camp free of charge, picnic and barbeque in all national and regional parks. Take advantage of fun activities such as swimming, boating, fishing, canoeing, bushwalking, cycling, orienteering and watching the local wildlife.

If you’re visiting, a few items to note:

  • Dogs are welcome in Regional Parks, but are not permitted in National Parks
  • Hunting is not permitted in any Regional or National Parks
  • Registered vehicles including motorbikes may use public roads on NPWS Estate, provided they are driven by a licensed driver.
  • Driving off road is not permitted.
  • Campfires are not permitted during the bushfire danger period (usually Oct - Mar)
