The Coach and Horses campground is open all year round.  This exception is that this area is susceptible to road closures due to flooding and rain.

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.
