Balranald is a beautiful rural town on the banks of the Murrumbidgee River. Balranald Shire is also home to the spectacular Yanga national Park and World heritage listed Mungo national park, rich in Aboriginal history. Surrounded by five of NSW’s most iconic rivers (the Murray, Lachlan, Wakool, Edward & Murrumbidgee), the town provides an ideal location for boating, fishing, kayaking and other water sports.
It also boasts a range of native flora and fauna and a number of funky frog sculptures are scattered around town. Placed between scenic wetlands and the sunburnt outback, Balranald is a unique combination giving you the best of both worlds.
