Located in the central Darling about 1 hour south east of Broken Hill near the Darling River town Menindee, Kinchega National Park provides wonder access to the Darling River for river camping and fishing. Rich in indigenous and pastoral history, Kinchega is bounded by the Darling River upstream from Menindee Lakes.
The park provides some of the best access to Darling River.
Kinchega National Park is rich in natural history, a place that seems designed for nature lovers and photographers. It’s also a place to immerse yourself in Aboriginal and European heritage. Sit back, relax and watch the native wildlife, where the red sand reaches up and touches the clear blue sky.
The area of Kinchega incorporates half the lakes which makes up Menindee Lakes; man-made lakes (originally pondages of the Darling River) feed by the seasonal flow of the Darling River.
