About the Area

Known as the ute capital of the world, Deniliquin is situated in Country NSW on a tributary of the Murray River, 750 km south-west of Sydney. The town holds The Guinness Book of Records world title for the most utes mustered in one place and continues to break its record each year during the annual Ute Muster Play on the Plains Festival. Held in October, this is a fun-packed local event not to be missed.

Deniliquin is at the centre of Riverina sheep-station country and on the fringe of one of the worlds largest red gum forests, where birds and wildlife abound in the Barmah Wetlands. A network of forest trails offers bush walking, camping, biking and bird watching.

The Edward River is Deniliquin’s aquatic playground where you can ski, kayak, boat, fish or just float from sandy beach to sandy beach. The river is divided into two distinct and separate areas, downstream of McLean Beach for skiing, wake boarding and fast boats and upstream of the beach for passive recreation activities such as floating, kayaking and canoeing in a safe and friendly environment.

The Deniliquin area is rich in history and heritage, and there are several landmarks to see. You will also find wineries and restaurants in the region that demonstrate why it is such a popular food and wine destination. If you prefer simpler, earthy snacking, try the Bush Tucker Trail in Jerilderie.
