Nestled alongside the Edward River and surrounded by the world’s largest red gum forests in the Murray Valley National Park is the Southern Riverina regional centre of Deniliquin.
It’s a rural paradise, mixing friendly country living with a plethora of services, facilities and opportunities.
Deniliquin boasts a wonderful climate, allowing 8,000 residents and many thousands of annual visitors the opportunity to fully enjoy our natural beauty.
Drop a line into the Edward River – renowned as the best Murray Cod fishing in Australia – meander along the riverside walks or say g’day to local wildlife in the Island Sanctuary, situated in the heart of town and just a stone’s throw from the magnificent 18 hole golf course. If you enjoy a game of golf, don’t pass by Deni without playing our testing lay-out on the edge of the forest.
If you are simply looking for relaxation, take in the tranquillity of McLean or Willoughby’s Beach on the Edward River banks, or sit back and enjoy lunch on the lawns of our award winning Waring Gardens, adjacent to the shopping centre.
Our river is famous for its diversity, with stretches where you can fish in peace, nonchalantly wander in a houseboat or float on an inflatable device, paddle a canoe or if you prefer more active river activity there are excellent skiing and wake-boarding waters.
And when planning your trip, why not ensure your visit coincides with the iconic World Record Deni Ute Muster – fast becoming an Aussie ‘bucket list’ event – or the fantastic Big Sky Blues & Roots Festival which features a host of world-class musicians. They’re on the NSW October long weekend and Easter respectively.
Deniliquin is serviced by four caravan parks, plus a range of choices including motels, cabins, bed and breakfast and riverside retreats. There are options for the budget conscious, or our visitors looking for a little more luxury. One thing they all have in common is good value and friendly Deni hospitality. And talking of friendly hospitality… you’ll also find it at any of our great country pubs and three licensed clubs.
