Coach and horses campground PAROO-DARLING NP
It’s such a pretty spot by the majestic river red gums along the Darling River. We did a bit of fishing, but didn’t manage to catch anything – lucky we brought plenty of supplies with us.”
In a delightful, shady spot next to a bend in the Darling, the Coach and Horses campground offers a bush camp with views up and down the river.
Spend the day exploring the river in a kayak or canoe or enjoy a spot of fishing. If you’re walking along the banks of the river, be sure to keep an eye out for the local birds.
See the Download section for latest tours.

The usual group gathered at Reconciliation Park on Sunday 29th March to give the somewhat neglected area a bit of attention.
Our youngest participant was Harrison Cain, who thought the street should not just be litter free but gravel free as well, while a couple of our well known senior citizens were true to form and used a fire stick to get rid of large piles of sticks and leaves.
By midday the length of Ross Street had been picked free of litter, the park was litter free, trip hazards around the tables removed, trees pruned, grass mowed and trimmed and a leaky tap repaired.
