Self-Guided River Red Gums and Koala Spotting Tours
Enjoy the natural beauty of the Narrandera Flora & Fauna Reserve. Spot for koalas while you are there. Pick up a self-guide map from the Narrandera Visitor Information Centre.
Situated on the bank of the Murrumbidgee River at Sandigo is Glendale Citrus & Hazelnut Orchard. Graham and Barbara Eipper invite you to hop aboard a vintage tractor-drawn covered carriage and meander through their orchard where you will often stop to pick an orange, crack a hazelnut or even spot a Koala! The one hour guided tour of the Riverina’s first and only citrus and hazelnut orchard ends at a picturesque river campsite where you will enjoy morning or afternoon refreshments, or instead you can pre-book a relaxing lunch which includes Barbara’s mustards, salad dressings and other home-made seasonal bounties. Visits to Glendale can be topped off with a special soft serve ice cream cone or sundae with homemade syrups and crushed hazelnuts from Barbara’s Soft Serve Ice Cream Van.
Bookings are essential and on offer by appointment only to groups of 12 or more people. For further enquiries phone (02) 6959 8286 or mobile 0429 641 778.
