Natural landmarks


Perry Sandhills
   The Perry Sandhills is 10 hectares of striking red sandhills that were once part of the huge Willandra Lakes System and date back to an ice age 40,000 years ago. Evidence suggests that the Barkindji people lived here since ancient times and bones of mega fauna found in the sandhills also reveal that huge kangaroos, wombats and other creatures once roamed the region. Located 5 kilometres from Wentworth near Mildura.

Kings Billabong
   Bordered by a wide stretch of the Murray River, home to majestic river red gums and a variety of bird life, Kings Billabong Reserve is an ideal place to discover nature and history. See the historic Psyche Pumping Station, built in 1891 by the Chaffey Brothers to meet the needs of the irrigation settlement. Follow the Nature Walk, spot bird populations, take in fabulous views over the Billabong and see shell middens and scarred trees - evidence of the local Aboriginal people who lived around the billabong. Kings Billabong is on the Murray River floodplain, 8 kilometres south-east of Mildura.

Confluence of the Murray and Darling rivers
  Head to Wentworth to Junction Park and climb the viewing tower to overlook the spot where the Murray and Darling rivers converge. In times of high water levels, the waters of the two rivers are distinctly different colours. See where they merge and flow on to Lock 10 and weir.

Neds Corner Station
  Part of the Barkindji Biosphere, the Trust for Nature-managed Neds Corner Station is a 30,000-hectare landholding containing a mosaic of rare landforms and threatened ecosystems along the Murray River 80 kilometres west of Mildura.

The Red Cliffs lookout with scenic reserve
  The scenic reserve forms the basis from which the township of Red Cliffs derived its name. The 21-hectare reserve features high red cliffs facing the Murray River. As well as a place of scenic beauty, the site has an interesting history including ancient aboriginal relics. The lookout and reserve is located 4 kilometres from Red Cliffs.
