Included in the gallery below are some photos taken in Reconciliation Park (opposite Wilcannia Hospital, in Ross Street)

Details and photos of other parks will be posted soon.

Enjoyable walks along the river

There are a number of enjoyable walking and jogging tracks along the river that also offer some great photo opportunities.

The river can be viewed from Baker Park, in Reid Street, and if you stand in the right spot, a few feet from the foot of the yellow stairs looking downstream, you can get a photo of the old bridge without the new one being visible.

Steamers Point, on traditional Barkindji land, is on the right had side of the Tilpa road adjacent to the Golf Course, and again offers some great photo and bird watching opportunities.
