We are waiting for you…come and find us 1st June!

As travel restrictions to regional NSW are lifted from 1st June, Narrandera Tourism is looking forward to welcoming you back to our wonderful region!

If you are planning a trip, call in advance to check availability and confirm bookings before you head out. We remind you to be COVID-safe when visiting, and social distancing measures remain in place.

Visit and experience our natural attractions and experiences, camp along the river or stay at one of our accommodation venues, spot a koala, bike and hike our trails. It is all waiting for you!

Some experiences…..

Our Waterways

The Murrumbidgee River runs between Narrandera and Gillenbah and is home to endangered species Murray Cray, Trout Cod and Murray Cod. The river is bounded by a red gum corridor characteristic of the Riverina region.

Rocky Water Hole area is a popular spot for picnics, fishing, canoeing and camping. A bridge  links public reserve areas north and south of the Bundidgerry Creek for visitors and locals to enjoy. When you are enjoying the great outdoors in the waterway environs you may see a Wallaby, Kangaroo, Koala or Goanna and this place is no exception. Not far from the bridge there is a boat ramp, a simple barbeque and a shelter with tables and seating.

Narrandera Water Tower

Using over 120 litres of paint applied to the murals and river that connects the two artworks, the outcome is an incredible sight to behold.  With the best view across town, visitors and residents are able to head to the water tower and immerse themselves in a visual collection of landmarks, activities, flora and fauna that resonates with our community. The stories behind the design include significant icons for the Narrandera Shire Community with the colours inspired by our local environment including the colours of sunsets viewed from this site.

 

Narrandera Bike and Hike Experience

A great experience for visitors who love to bike and hike! There are three separate track entry points, take one, or take them all. You are able to tailor your journey to suit your experience and ability. Directional and interpretive signage will guide you throughout the trails. Trails will take you past historic buildings, gorgeous street scapes, koala spotting opportunities, past the Murrumbidgee River, and Lake Talbot, past two picnic areas with toilet facilities and BBQ, Narrandera Wetlands for bird life experience.

COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

COVID-19 is now impacting all of Australia and restrictions are in place. The government is urging the cancellation or postponement of non-essential travel.

On 30th March 2020, the NSW Public Health (COVID-19 Restrictions on Gathering and Movement) Order 2020 under the Public Health Act 2010 was updated so that a person must not, without reasonable excuse, leave the person’s place of residence, and states that taking a holiday in a regional area is not a reasonable excuse. The legislation is available to view here.

We look forward to welcoming you to the Narrandera Shire once this crisis is over, and we remind everyone that you should not visit regional areas during this time.
