Beach to Beach Walking & Bicycle Path Tour  

Go Back

The Beach to Beach Walking & Bicycle Path Tour takes approximately 2 hours

Starting the walk at McLean Beach follow the path along the banks of the Edward River past magnificent red gum trees and sandy beaches. Time permitting call in at the Deniliquin Historical Society for a fascinating look at Deniliquin’s history, then continue on past the hospital, police station, medical centre to the Ute on the Pole. This WB Holden ute was erected in 2000 to celebrate Deniliquin’s famous ute muster.

Continue along the path heading under the National Bridge built in 1969 and the 3rd bridge built in this vicinity.

A short diversion at the back of the Peppin Heritage Centre will bring you to the Mosaic Ute and the Long Paddock sculpture called ‘Shod’.Don’t miss a visit to the centre which was the old Deniliquin Public School as you will thoroughly enjoy the fantastic display and story of the pioneering families who set the path to Australia’s wonderful wool industry and enjoy going back in time in the original old school room.

As you pass the sculptures you will come to the ramp which will take you down to the Island Sanctuary.   As you wander through this tranquil setting keep an eye for out for the birds, kangaroos and beautiful trees.  Why not organise a tour with Yarkuwa Indigenious Knowledge Group who will show you the native flora and fauna and trees of historical importance to the local Wamba Wamba & Perrapa Perrapa people.

Walking though to the river side of the sanctuary you may be able to see where the original town weir still crosses the river. The walking path continues at the back gate of the sanctuary where you will pass the first town water supply tower and remnants of where the steam-powered engine was. Memorial Park is home to the Rovers Aussie Rules Football & Netball Club, Cricket Association, Playgroup, Collectors Club and Agricultural Show Society.  

Finally you enter into the Murray Valley Regional Park where you can follow the tracks around the river, enjoy the beautiful sandy beaches and wonder how such a beautiful spot could be in the middle of Deniliquin!
