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.
